Prof. Luisa Vonghia (Belgium) explores the role of fatty liver disease and metabolic comorbidities in the progression of chronic liver diseases. The key points addressed in this video are that co-existent fatty liver and related metabolic factors, including obesity and diabetes mellitus, exacerbate liver injury in patients with another chronic liver disease(s). These may be risk factors for the development of more severe outcomes. The outlined findings have important therapeutic implications and indicate that fatty liver and the related metabolic factors should be taken into account even if they are not the primary cause of liver disease.
