Approximately 25% of the global population has nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a broad term that covers a range of conditions. NAFLD is defined by the presence of macrovesicular steatosis without secondary causes, such as chronic use of medications, significant alcohol consumption, or hereditary disorders. Several phases of progression are noted, including simple steatosis, fibrosis, steatohepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma.
