The coexistence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and alcohol-related liver disease
In reality, both non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and alcohol-related liver disease (ARLD) very often coexist. This coexistence amplifies the burden typically associated with each disease, its liver-related morbidity (rate of disease), mortality (resulting deaths), and the burden it places on healthcare resources.
