There are insufficient data available on the epidemiology of fatty liver to design a complete and correct view of the prevalence, incidence and natural history of this disorder. This article, mainly based on the revision of recently published papers in this field, attempts to give an overview of the current findings on the epidemiology of fatty liver worldwide. The possible factors involved in the development of fat accumulation in the liver, and their potential role in the progression of the… Expand
Epidemiology and natural history of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.
TLDR
The epidemiology and natural history of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is described and current diagnostic and treatment methods and future implications NAFLD may have are described. Expand
Approach to the diagnosis and treatment of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
TLDR

THE EPIDEMIOLOGY OF NONALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER DISEASE ( NAFLD )
The epidemiology (prevalence, incidence, risk factors and natural history) of nonalcoholic liver disease (NAFLD) has started to be correctly outlined only in the last few years. However, accurateExpand

TLDR
The demographic, anthropometric, metabolic and histological characteristics of patients with NAFLD in the local population are defined and independent predictors of severe liver fibrosis are determined. Expand
Non alcoholic fatty liver: epidemiology and natural history.
TLDR
Its prevalence among liver diseases, and in the general population, is rising in the recent years along with its associated conditions: obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and diabetes, and its diffusion seems to be pandemic. Expand
The Genetics of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: Role of Diet as a Modifying Factor
TLDR
The role of specific genes and dietary constituents, as well as the nutrigenomic andNutrigenetic effects on NAFLD are described, which hold promise for future personalized diet interventions on the reduction of NAFLd and related health problems incidence. Expand
Epidemiology of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
TLDR
The majority of individuals with NAFLD do not develop NASH, and noninvasive markers such as the fatty liver index obtained from the Dionysos Study may be useful to screen forNAFLD in the general population. Expand
Role of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in hepatocellular carcinoma.
TLDR
This review examines the available information supporting the increased risk of hepatocellular carcinoma in obese patients and patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, considering the epidemiological and basic research-derived evidence. Expand
The genetics of NAFLD
TLDR
The current status of the field is described, discussing specific genetic and epigenetic modifiers, including the mechanisms through which genes identified by genome-wide association studies, including PNPLA3, influence disease progression. Expand

TLDR
It is anticipated that, through a better understanding of NAFL, more effective treatment protocols can be developed targeting only those patients with NASH that are at the highest risk for progression to cirrhosis and liver failure. Expand

TLDR
Data indicate that obesity plays a greater role than excessive alcohol intake in inducing fatty liver, and the relative roles of obesity and alcohol abuse, alone and in combination, in inducing steatosis are explored. Expand
