ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the non-invasive reproductive diagnostic tools to allow screening of huge population with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus. It contends that NAFLD is a fatty infiltration of hepatocytes associated with histological abnormalities, including non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). A non-invasive test can provide useful information to separate NAFLD from NASH and to allow to design preventive programs.
