Abstract

Current treatment of metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease focuses on adjusting patients' lifestyles, including promoting weight loss and physical activity. Here, we suggest adopting a holistic preventive hepatology approach encompassing social nutrition, social prescribing and broader societal changes to facilitate individuals' engagement with behavioural modifications. Ivancovsky-Wajcman et al. outline the need for a holistic preventive hepatology approach, involving social nutrition and social prescribing, to address the public health threat of metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease (MASLD). They argue that this will facilitate individuals' engagement in behavioural modifications to treat MASLD.
