Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease – the care you should expect

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease – the care you should expect

This information explains the care that NICE has said works best for people who have or may have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It covers children (from 1 year up to 16 years), young people (16 up to 18 years) and adults (18 and over). It will help you, your family and carers know what to expect from health and care services.

Your healthcare team should know about what NICE has said in its guideline on NAFLD. Talk to your doctor if you don't think you are getting the care NICE has said you should have.

Why is this important for you?

NICE aims to help people get the best care no matter who they are or where they live. The guideline aims to:

  • help doctors understand who is more likely to get NAFLD

  • make sure you go for regular check-ups if needed

  • make sure doctors explain what treatments are available to you.

  • Information Standard
