The 2022 NAFLD Summit presented a range of perspectives and insights on fatty liver and metabolic diseases. Program speakers Mazen Noureddin, Sven Francque and Hannes Hagström join Surfer, Roger Green, on site from Dublin to review their reactions immediately after the conference ended.
Discussing NITs and Final Thoughts on NAFLD Summit
This final conversation begins with Roger calling attention to a debate around NITs that took place on the opening day of the meeting. Mazen revisits what he has described on this podcast as the coming “combo-combo” world. The group generally agrees that biomarkers in primary care ought to be simple, cost effective and accessible. However, Sven utters a word of caution: while acknowledging the positive potential of NITs, it is still important to evaluate its limitations.
The episode concludes with a round of final reflections. Roger asks for panelists to forecast the most important thing that will have changed between now and when we return for the NAFLD Summit 2023. Surf on to find out what the panel predicts.
