Abstract

According to the papers published in this special issue, NAFLD is a serious problem, which each author from their own aspect tried to clarify. Regarding the fact that NAFLD is rarely isolated and that it is correlated with obesity, diabetes type 2, polycystic ovarian syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, and some cognitive deficits, its pathophysiology and clinical development require more investigations. Suggestions for the treatment by the implantation of the intragastric balloon must be considered as one of the treating solutions in the future.
