How to Treat NAFLD
The Most Effective Strategy
NAFLD can be improved with lifestyle changes and weight loss. Steatosis, or fat in the liver, starts to recede when someone loses as little as 3% of their total body weight. If someone loses 10% or more of their weight, we start to see fibrosis, or scar tissue, in the liver improve.
At 10% weight loss we also see improvement in:
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Sleep Apnea
- Esophageal Reflux
- Risk of several malignancies
Other Treatment Strategies
- Pharmacotherapy (medications) - Orlistat, Qsymia, Contrave, Saxenda, Plenity, Wegovy, Mounjaro
- Endoscopic options - Gastric Balloon, Aspiration Therapy, Sleeve Gastroplasty, Gastric Injections
- Bariatric surgery - Gastric Sleeve, Roux-en-Y, Gastric Bypass
- Common need for all of the above to be successful long-term: Concurrent and ongoing behavior & lifestyle modification program
Terri Improved NAFLD and Diabetes
Terri had a special ultrasound test called a Fibroscan that determines the amount of fat (STEATOSIS or S score - range 0-3, 3 being severe) and scar tissue (FIBROSIS or F score, range 0-4, 4 being severe).
She started with a score of S2 and F4 prior to starting the NovoLiver program; six months later, she had a score of S0 and F2 meaning her liver fat had disappeared and scarring had improved significantly.
Terri has also had diabetes for several years and required metformin. After the NovoLiver Program she was OFF the Metformin completely.
