Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) – what everyone should know

Recently, I’ve noticed I’m getting more and more enquiries from people who’ve been diagnosed with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and are struggling to manage their symptoms. Unfortunately, when diagnosed, they get very little in the way of support from their GP to help them reverse this condition, yet it is reversible if caught early enough.
