Description

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in the Primary Care Setting
This session will start by getting listeners up to date with the current understanding of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease both as a discrete disease process as well as a defining component of metabolic syndrome. From this foundation we will discuss several possible strategies for how to screen for it in your office, how to treat it as a primary care physician, and the role specialists play. Treatment will focus on current evidence regarding dietary and exercise interventions that seem to be particularly effective for NAFLD; screening will cover lab interpretation, the use of point-of-care ultrasound, CT, and MRI images.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand role of fatty liver disease as it pertains to cardiometabolic disease
  2. Develop strategies for screening for and assessing nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  3. Develop familiarity with first line treatment strategies appropriate for implementation in a primary care setting (both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic)
  4. Know when and how to refer to specialists
