From 6 to 8 yrs

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The progression of NAFLD is triggered by many factors like Diabetes, Alcohol use, Non alcoholic steatohepatitis, use of drugs and toxins etc.
Generally without influence of other factors as mentioned above, the average time taken to progress to cirrhosis is 7.7 yrs. If it is coupled with XXXXXXX then it would take an average of 6 yrs.
Hope this answers your question.
