Host: Alan S. Brown, MD, FNLA
Patients in lipidolgy clinics sometimes undergo diagnostic workups for mild liver enzyme elevations, and in select cases a diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease will be made. How does this diagnosis compare with the more inflammatory alcoholic fatty liver disease, and what roles should the lipidologist play in response to these findings? Dr. David Cohen, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of Hepatology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, joins host Dr. Alan Brown to discuss the pathogenesis and management of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
