Abstract

Subjects with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease are at risk of progressive liver failure. Lifestyle changes including weight-loss strategies and increased physical activity remain the first-line approach, but a few pharmacological treatments have also been successfully tested. Several drugs improve biochemistry, only a few improve histology; in all cases, the results were not sustained after treatment stop. Pharmacological treatment is not so far indicated outside controlled clinical trials with histological outcomes.
