International Nash Day

“Today is International NASH Day, a ground-breaking and first-of-its-kind initiative set-up to spread useful information about NASH and address unmet needs associated with this pathology. NASH is expected to become the #1 cause of liver transplant by 2020 in the United States, and its prevalence is projected to increase globally in association with obesity and type 2 diabetes. Yet NASH operates in silence by not showing symptoms. As a result it remains poorly-known, under-diagnosed, and as such represents a growing global public health issue in most countries worldwide”.

International Nash Day

Tomorrow is International NASH Day, the first international day dedicated to raising awareness on non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).

NASH is the most severe form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and is characterised by the presence of an abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver which in some individuals can progress to excessive scarring of the liver, Cirrhosis and end-stage liver disease.

“NASH is closely related to the triple epidemic of obesity, pre-diabetes, and diabetes, and can be defined as the liver manifestation of the metabolic syndrome. It is heavily influenced by lifestyle (e.g. chronic excessive calorie intake, sedentary activity) and is distinct from other fatty liver diseases caused by alcohol abuse or medication side effects”. https://www.international-nash-day.com/
