Metabolic Dysfunction and Fatty Liver Disease: Prioritizing Lifestyle and Non-Pharmacological Approaches
Metabolically-driven fatty liver disorders are a growing worldwide burden, mostly tied to the increasing prevalence of all cardiometabolic disorders such as obesity, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. In the past few decades, much has been learned about the pathophysiology of this chronic disease, especially the interplay between hepatic fatty acid metabolism and the gut microbiome, intestinal permeability, mitochondrial function and innate immune activation.
Along with established lifestyle recommendations, Dr. Guilliams explains non-pharmacological agents that may be helpful to clinicians looking for supportive therapies for patients dealing with these progressive disorders.
The Standard Road Maps
The Standard Road Map Series takes an evidence-based perspective on a variety of topics. Recommended reading for both the novice and the expert in functional medicine who want to expand their clinical knowledge.
In-practice guides focus on clinical case study presentations and lifestyle and nutrient protocols. Great for clinicians who want to learn how to assess labs and develop treatment strategies.
Questionnaires are designed to be given to the patient at their first visit and can be used in follow-up visits to measure progress. They help you prioritize intervention strategies and determine additional testing needs.
Patient Education Videos
These animated videos help educate patients on a variety of health topics. They can be shown in the exam room prior to the initial appointment, sent to the patient after the first visit, or used to market to prospective patients.
These patient-focused, tear-off sheets help start the conversation on functional medicine concepts and lifestyle and nutrient support considerations.
This tool is homework for patients, designed to reinforce concepts from the first office visit and help them better understand the journey to better health.
