Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is being recognized as one of the most prevalent causes of chronic liver disease worldwide. The current strategy proposed by the EASL/EASO/EASD European guidelines for the screening of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in high-risk population such as type 2 diabetes and patients with obesity leads to an over-referral in hepatology clinics. The proposed study will investigate the optimal strategy for the screening of NAFLD-related advanced fibrosis in patients at high risk of fibrotic NAFLD, such as patients with T2DM or obesity by maximizing the positive predictive value (PPV) using non-invasive blood and elastography-based biomarkers in endocrinology/diabetology clinics in order to reduce the over-referral to hepatology clinics.
