Dr. Vinson is correct. We pathologists are seeing fat teens who never exercised in their lives dead from end-stage NAFLD / NASH.

In brief: NAFLD or NASH

in its worst form can lead to cirrhosis of the liver and liver failure requiring liver transplant.
In fact, NASH has replaced alcoholic liver disease as the most common preventable cause of liver transplant in the United States. Hope this helps!
