Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Clinic
Phoenix Children's offers a comprehensive management of fatty liver. It’s estimated that 10 children out of 100 will develop Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, or NAFLD. Implementing a healthy lifestyle for our patients is key to treating the disease — but we know this takes time.
To help patients adjust their diet and increase physical activity, we involve a full team of experts: physicians, pediatric nutritionists, psychologists and the CARE Clinic. We follow the patients over time because managing NAFLD is a life-long challenge. In selective cases, we refer patients to see Endocrinology, Pulmonology, Neurology, Nephrology or Cardiology, depending on their associated conditions.
You’re not alone
Because NAFLD can be a life-long challenge, we’re committed to working with families for the long haul — whether that’s for a few months or several years.
