44.2 – 2020 Year In Review: Fatty Liver Disease Enters the Public Dialogue in Germany

Joern Schattenberg discusses the public health implications of German newspapers beginning to discuss Fatty Liver Disease

For Joern Schattenberg, reading about Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in a German newspaper “has two or three very important implications that we have discussed on the podcast in the past year,” particularly in terms of educating patients with metabolic syndromes and families with obese children or adolescents. Increasing awareness of late-stage liver fibrosis and cirrhosis will bring short-term benefits to one set of patients, while reducing the frequency of liver disease in the young will have long-term benefits for these patients and the society at large.
