More than 40% of the global population have functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs)1 and in Australia, 1 in 4 adults and 20.6% of children are diagnosed with Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)/Metabolic associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD),2,10,12 with an exponential increase in burden of disease predicted. MAFLD is likely to become the leading global indication for liver transplantation within the next decade11 with an anticipated increase of 85% by 2030.

These alarming statistics highlight a significant shortfall in integrative gastrointestinal (GI) care specialists.

  • PM (2.5) after extreme weather events – Metabolic associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) and Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)3,4
  • Endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure and NAFLD3,4
  • Trauma-related disorders – gut microbiome5
  • Post viral COVID-19 infection (IBS, Dyspepsia and microbiota)6,7
