Link between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and diabetes: a TV report

In its TV series “Gesundheit (Health)” on January 28, 2014, Bavarian Radio included a feature about non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). In the broadcast entitled “An Underestimated but Widespread Disease”, DZD scientist Professor Norbert Stefan of the University Hospital Tübingen talked about NAFLD. Referring to the example of a patient, Stefan showed how a change in lifestyle – here a better diet and more exercise – can help to alleviate and even reverse fatty liver. NAFLD is a factor in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes.
