Description
The problems among obesity, diabetes mellitus (DM), fatty liver, metabolic dysfunction have been prevalent, and diagnostic criteria as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has been used in practice. When diagnosing NAFLD, to exclude other related liver diseases was necessary, including excessive alcohol intake. The international experts proposed the proper term from NAFLD to metabolic associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD). MAFLD criteria include the evidence of the presence of hepatic steatosis associated with three situations. They are obesity/overweight, presence of Type 2 DM (T2DM), or metabolic impaired function, which were studied in the light of pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis and pharmacotherapy.
