Every year millions of people around the world are told they have a serious form of liver disease called NASH. For many patients, the diagnosis is a surprise since NASH can develop with few to no serious symptoms. Patients are typically counseled to undergo lifestyle changes such as weight loss to slow disease progression. This is because prolonged liver inflammation can lead to even more serious disease, such as cirrhosis or cancer. This can feel overwhelming to a person who has likely struggled with maintaining a healthy weight. But there are new options on the horizon.
