Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), also called the ‘silent disease,’ is a kind of fatty liver disease which typically affects people that are obese or diabetic. This disease is more prevalent in the younger generation and causes liver inflammation and/or damage owing to the accumulation of fat within the liver. The exact cause of this disease is still not clear; however, research activities are underway for finding effective treatments to cure this disease.

Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) is a syndrome that advances in patients who are not alcoholic; it causes liver damage that is histologically indistinguishable from alcoholic hepatitis. The major feature in NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. Most people with NASH feel well and are not aware of their liver problem. However, NASH can be severe and can lead to cirrhosis, in which the liver is permanently damaged and no longer able to work properly. It develops most frequently in patients with at least one of the following risk factors as obesity, dyslipidemia, and glucose intolerance. Pathogenesis is not clearly understood but seems to be linked to insulin resistance. Most of the patients are asymptomatic. Laboratory outcomes include elevations in aminotransferase levels. Biopsy is essential to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment mainly focusses on elimination of causes and risk factors.
The prevalence of NASH and NAFLD is increasing across the globe but it is more in developed regions such as North America. Both NASH and NAFLD are becoming more common, perhaps because of the greater number of Americans with obesity. In the past few years, the rate of obesity has almost doubled in adults and tripled in children. Obesity also adds to diabetes and high blood cholesterol, which can further complicate the health of people suffering from NASH. Diabetes and high blood cholesterol are also becoming more common among Americans.
