Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

One-third of Americans have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, the accumulation of extra fat in liver cells not caused by alcohol. David Victor, MD, discusses how Houston Methodist doctors combine lifestyle modifications, dietary changes and medications to treat this disorder and ultimately prevent advanced liver disease.

Hepatitis C

Robert McFadden, MD, director of the hepatitis C program at Houston Methodist Hospital, explains how a blood screening is essential in diagnosing hepatitis C, the leading cause of viral hepatitis, liver failure and liver transplantation. Because symptoms are often vague and undetectable, patients may not even know they have hepatitis C for years until serious complications arise.
