Strategies for Management of NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease)

Strategies for Management of NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease)

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have canceled the event. At this time there are no plans to reschedule this event. We apologize for any inconvenience.

About This Webinar:

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is becoming increasingly common. It is estimated to affect over 25% of adults worldwide, 50% of individuals with type 2 diabetes, and 90% of obese individuals. While the potential hepatic consequences of advanced NAFLD, such as cirrhosis and cancer are widely publicized, they are rare in occurrence. Current research suggests atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is a much greater concern in this population.

This presentation highlights evidenced based strategies for managing NAFLD that registered dietitians and other healthcare professionals can share with their patients for better disease management.

Following this presentation, attendees should be able to:

1. Identify risk factors for developing NAFLD

2. Identify appropriate anthropometric, laboratory, and nutrition-focused physical findings to include in nutrition assessments

3. State three diet/lifestyle changes to recommend to clients diagnosed with NAFLD

Presenter:

Michelle Hyman MS, RD, CDN, CSOWM, CDCES - Registered Dietitian, Certified Specialist in Obesity and Weight Management, Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist.

CE credit is available.
