There is, however, a lot of uncertainty on how to handle NAFLD in clinical practice. The current guidance document. c piled under the aegis of the Belgian Association for the Study of the Liver by a panel of experts in NAFLD, front a broad range of different specialties, covers many questions encountered in daily clinical practice regarding diagnosis, screening, therapy and follow-up in adult and paediatric patients. Guidance statements in this document are based on the available evidence whenever possible. lit case of absence of evidence or inconsistency of the data, guidance statements were formulated based on consensus of the expert panel. This guidance document is intended as a help for clinicians (general practitioners and all involved specialties) to implement the most recent evidence and insights in the field of NAFLD within a Belgian perspective.
