Good question. One of the LC docs I follow on twitter - I'm pretty sure it was Dr Brian Lenskes of the LC MDs podcast - just recently mentioned that liver fat is so prevalent, it's not even being noted by radiologists when they're dictating their reports. He had to ask his radiology colleagues to do so!

I can't find a source for this, but I've also seen it mentioned that NAFLD has recently passed alcoholism as the most common cause of liver cirrhosis.

Let that sink in.
