9/11 First Responders Have a High Rate of Fatty Liver Disease
« on: August 24, 2020, 10:21:58 am »
First responders to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City have a very high rate of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), Healio reports.

Mishal Reja, MD, of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey, discussed the findings of a recent study of 9/11 first responders at a press conference in advance of the Digestive Diseases Week virtual conference.

According to Reja, 9/11 first responders should be particularly concerned about fatty liver disease and should be carefully assessed for the condition, which in its more severe form is known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
