Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common liver disease in the United States, affecting almost 10 percent of all children. Sometimes referred to as "fatty liver disease," it is actually a range of diseases that all begin when excess fat gets deposited in the liver, most significantly impacting our obese patients.

In today’s episode we are joined by guest Shikha Sundaram, MD to discuss the clinical presentation and treatment of NAFLD, including how primary care providers can provide critical support to families making significant lifestyle changes as part of their treatment.

Dr. Sundaram is the Medical Director of the Pediatric Liver Transplant Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado and is Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
