About this course

Non-alcoholic liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of liver disease in the United States and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality once NALFD progresses to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). NASH is predicted to become the main indication for liver transplant in the United States as obesity rates continue to rise. Currently, management of NAFLD is limited to lifestyle modifications with pharmacotherapy gaps. Once NAFLD has progressed to NASH, the use of off-label medications including thiazolidines and vitamin E can be considered. However, in recent years, GLP-1 agonists and SGLT-2 antagonists have demonstrated efficacy in reversing hepatosteatosis and fibrosis in several studies in NAFLD and early NASH. Additionally, several novel agents are in phase III clinical studies for the treatment of NASH. The scope of treatment of NAFLD and NASH is likely to change dramatically in the next decade as the burden of disease increases.

I really loved this information. I was hospitalized last year for almost a month and I noticed multiple medical errors (not being hooked up to my IV multiple times, given wrong medication which caused my sodium to be very low, etc.) which lengthened my stay. I can now define those exact errors and better understand what happened to me. I hate that these medical errors are so common and I appreciate how well laid out your breakdown and categorization of them was.
