The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.
Lipid-protein complexes involved in the transportation and metabolism of lipids in the body. They are spherical particles consisting of a hydrophobic core of TRIGLYCERIDES and CHOLESTEROL ESTERS surrounded by a layer of hydrophilic free CHOLESTEROL; PHOSPHOLIPIDS; and APOLIPOPROTEINS. Lipoproteins are classified by their varying buoyant density and sizes.
Domesticated bovine animals of the genus Bos, usually kept on a farm or ranch and used for the production of meat or dairy products or for heavy labor.
LIPOLYSIS of stored LIPIDS in the ADIPOSE TISSUE to release FREE FATTY ACIDS. Mobilization of stored lipids is under the regulation of lipolytic signals (CATECHOLAMINES) or anti-lipolytic signals (INSULIN) via their actions on the hormone-sensitive LIPASE. This concept does not include lipid transport.

Steroid acids and salts. The primary bile acids are derived from cholesterol in the liver and usually conjugated with glycine or taurine. The secondary bile acids are further modified by bacteria in the intestine. They play an important role in the digestion and absorption of fat. They have also been used pharmacologically, especially in the treatment of gallstones.
Derivatives of caprylic acid. Included under this heading are a broad variety of acid forms, salts, esters, and amides that contain a carboxy terminated eight carbon aliphatic structure.

Lymphocyte proliferation inhibitory factor (PIF) in alcoholic liver disease. (1/3223)

Lymphocyte proliferation inhibitory factor (PIF) was determined in the supernatants of PHA-stimulated lymphocytes from patients with alcoholic liver disease. PIF was assayed by determining inhibition of DNA synthesis in WI-38 human lung fibroblasts. A two-fold greater inhibition in thymidine incorporation into DNA by lung fibroblasts was observed in supernatants of PHA stimulated lymphocytes from patients with alcoholic hepatitis or active Laennec's cirrhosis as compared with that found in control subjects or patients with fatty liver. It is suggested that decreased liver cell regeneration seen in some patients with alcoholic hepatitis may be due to increased elaboration of PIF.  (+info)

Preventive effects of dehydroepiandrosterone acetate on the fatty liver induced by orotic acid in male rats. (2/3223)

Preventive effects of dehydroepiandrosteone acetate (DHEA-A) and clofibrate (positive control substance) on the fatty liver induced by orotic acid (OA) were examined on the male Sprague-Dawley rats fed a high sucrose based diet containing 1% OA and this diet further mixed with 0.5% DHEA-A or 0.5% clofibrate for 2 weeks. Numerous lipid droplets were observed in the hepatocytes of the rats treated with OA alone, but not in those treated with DHEA-A or clofibrate. In comparison to the group with OA alone, the DHEA-A or clofibrate treated rats showed a larger relative liver weight (to body weight) which was accompanied by increased peroxisomes in the hepatocytes. These results indicate that DHEA-A, as well as clofibrate, may prevent OA-induced fatty liver.  (+info)

Liver disease in pregnancy. (3/3223)

Acute viral hepatitis is the most common cause of jaundice in pregnancy. The course of acute hepatitis is unaffected by pregnancy, except in patients with hepatitis E and disseminated herpes simplex infections, in which maternal and fetal mortality rates are significantly increased. Chronic hepatitis B or C infections may be transmitted to neonates; however, hepatitis B virus transmission is effectively prevented with perinatal hepatitis B vaccination and prophylaxis with hepatitis B immune globulin. Cholelithiasis occurs in 6 percent of pregnancies; complications can safely be treated with surgery. Women with chronic liver disease or cirrhosis exhibit a higher risk of fetal loss during pregnancy. Preeclampsia is associated with HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count) syndrome, acute fatty liver of pregnancy, and hepatic infarction and rupture. These rare diseases result in increased maternal and fetal mortality. Treatment involves prompt delivery, whereupon the liver disease quickly reverses. Therapy with penicillamine, trientine, prednisone or azathioprine can be safely continued during pregnancy.  (+info)

Molecular heterogeneity in very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency causing pediatric cardiomyopathy and sudden death. (4/3223)

BACKGROUND: Genetic defects are being increasingly recognized in the etiology of primary cardiomyopathy (CM). Very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) catalyzes the first step in the beta-oxidation spiral of fatty acid metabolism, the crucial pathway for cardiac energy production. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 37 patients with CM, nonketotic hypoglycemia and hepatic dysfunction, skeletal myopathy, or sudden death in infancy with hepatic steatosis, features suggestive of fatty acid oxidation disorders. Single-stranded conformational variance was used to screen genomic DNA. DNA sequencing and mutational analysis revealed 21 different mutations on the VLCAD gene in 18 patients. Of the mutations, 80% were associated with CM. Severe CM in infancy was recognized in most patients (67%) at presentation. Hepatic dysfunction was common (33%). RNA blot analysis and VLCAD enzyme assays showed a severe reduction in VLCAD mRNA in patients with frame-shift or splice-site mutations and absent or severe reduction in enzyme activity in all. CONCLUSIONS: Infantile CM is the most common clinical phenotype of VLCAD deficiency. Mutations in the human VLCAD gene are heterogeneous. Although mortality at presentation is high, both the metabolic disorder and cardiomyopathy are reversible.  (+info)

Detection of haptoglobin in the high-density lipoprotein and the very high-density lipoprotein fractions from sera of calves with experimental pneumonia and cows with naturally occurring fatty liver. (5/3223)

In addition to the lipoprotein-deficient d > 1.25 fraction, haptoglobin was detected in the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and the very high-density lipoprotein (VHDL) fractions from sera of calves with experimental pneumonia and cows with naturally occurring fatty liver. It was not found in the chylomicrons, very low-density lipoprotein and low-density lipoprotein fractions. Washing of the HDL fraction did not decrease the haptoglobin concentration. Transferrin and immunoglobulin G were immunoblotted to examine the possibility of contamination of the lipoprotein fractions by the d > 1.25 fraction. The two serum proteins were detected only in the d > 1.25 fraction, not in any lipoprotein fractions. The distribution pattern of haptoglobin in the lipoprotein fractions was distinct from that of serum albumin. Concentrations of haptoglobin in the HDL fractions from pneumonic sera were largely proportional to those in whole sera. Cholesteryl ester concentrations were decreased in sera from calves with pneumonia, as in cows with fatty liver. A protein immunologically related to hemoglobin was also detected in particular in the VHDL fractions from sera of both groups. These results suggest that haptoglobin or a complex with the hemoglobin-like protein may have a role or roles related to the lipid metabolism.  (+info)

Protection by short-chain fatty acids against 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosylcytosine-induced intestinal lesions in germfree mice. (6/3223)

In germfree mice, the administration of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) protected the intestinal mucosa from damage produced by 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosylcytosine (Ara-C). Animals receiving SCFA and Ara-C had intestinal morphologies closer to normal than the control animals, which had severe intestinal lesions. We concluded that orally administrated SCFA reduce intestinal lesions, improving the mucosa pattern of the small intestine and colon.  (+info)

Fatty liver--an additional and treatable feature of the insulin resistance syndrome. (7/3223)

To test the hypothesis that fatty liver coexists with other metabolic abnormalities of the insulin resistance syndrome, and responds to their amelioration, we prospectively studied 48 consecutive patients with chronically elevated liver enzymes and clinical, ultrasound and histological findings consistent with fatty infiltration of the liver. Most of the patients were overweight or obese (64%) with increased waist circumference which closely relates to visceral fat. Only 10% of the patients had normal glucose tolerance: 44% had diabetes mellitus, 29% impaired glucose tolerance, and 17% were hyperinsulinaemic. The most common dyslipidaemia found was hypertriglyceridaemia and/or low HDL-C (86%). Dietary intervention and follow-up (median 24 months), supplemented by oral hypoglycaemic or lipid-lowering drugs as needed, resulted not only in weight loss (mean 3.7 kg), decreased fasting blood glucose (p < 0.005) and improvement in serum lipid profile (p < 0.02 for both triglycerides or HDL-C) but also in an improvement of serum liver enzymes in 96%, which became normal in more than half of the patients. Thus, fatty liver was strongly associated with many features of the insulin resistance syndrome, and follow-up revealed a high potential for reversibility and a benign course.  (+info)

A fetal fatty-acid oxidation disorder as a cause of liver disease in pregnant women. (8/3223)

BACKGROUND: Acute fatty liver of pregnancy and the HELLP syndrome (hemolysis, elevated liver-enzyme levels, and a low platelet count) are serious hepatic disorders that may occur during pregnancy in women whose fetuses are later found to have a deficiency of long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A (CoA) dehydrogenase. This enzyme resides in the mitochondrial trifunctional protein, which also contains the active site of long-chain 2,3-enoyl-CoA hydratase and long-chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase. We undertook this study to determine the relation between mutations in the trifunctional protein in infants with defects in fatty-acid oxidation and acute liver disease during pregnancy in their mothers. METHODS: In 24 children with 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, we used DNA amplification and nucleotide-sequence analyses to identify mutations in the alpha subunit of the trifunctional protein. We then correlated the results with the presence of liver disease during pregnancy in the mothers. RESULTS: Nineteen children had a deficiency only of long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase and presented with hypoketotic hypoglycemia and fatty liver. In eight children, we identified a homozygous mutation in which glutamic acid at residue 474 was changed to glutamine. Eleven other children were compound heterozygotes, with this mutation in one allele of the alpha-subunit gene and a different mutation in the other allele. While carrying fetuses with the Glu474Gln mutation, 79 percent of the heterozygous mothers had fatty liver of pregnancy or the HELLP syndrome. Five other children, who presented with neonatal dilated cardiomyopathy or progressive neuromyopathy, had complete deficiency of the trifunctional protein (loss of activity of all three enzymes). None had the Glu474Gln mutation, and none of their mothers had liver disease during pregnancy. CONCLUSIONS: Women with acute liver disease during pregnancy may have a Glu474Gln mutation in long-chain hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase. Their infants are at risk for hypoketotic hypoglycemia and fatty liver.  (+info)

CONTEXT: Non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome. NAFLD represents a spectrum of liver disease ranging from reversible hepatic steatosis, to non alcoholic steato-hepatitis (NASH) and cirrhosis. The potential role of glucocorticoids (GC) in the pathogenesis of NAFLD is highlighted in patients with GC excess, Cushings syndrome, who develop central adiposity, insulin resistance and in 20% of cases, NAFLD. Although in most cases of NAFLD, circulating cortisol levels are normal, hepatic cortisol availability is controlled by enzymes that regenerate cortisol (F) from inactive cortisone (E) (11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1, 11β-HSD1), or inactivate cortisol through A-ring metabolism (5α- and 5β-reductase, 5αR and 5βR). OBJECTIVE AND METHODS: In vitro studies defined 11β-HSD1 expression in normal and NASH liver samples. We then characterised hepatic cortisol metabolism in 16 patients with histologically proven NAFLD compared to 32 obese

Thank you Dr. Berneki for the kind introduction. Its a pretty neat way of introducing myself before and after liver transplantation. So the topic that Ive been given today is fatty liver disease, both alcohol and non-alcoholic. Now how do patients come to light? I think each of you may see patients in different clinical scenarios, people have liver tests done as part of a comprehensive metabolic panel, you know annual physical exam, health insurance, disability insurance, etc. Another common way that we are seeing patients you know abdominal imaging is being done for God knows what reason, patients who up in the ER, CT scans are done of the abdomen, CT scans of the chest. The upper abdomen is you know in that image and you have a fatty liver and thats how the patient shows up in practice. Now this slide kind of summarizes what fatty liver is. Its either alcohol, or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Everything else is actually very, very rare. Just for completion, I mean I have a list over ...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease ( NAFLD ) can be diagnosed on the basis of Evidence of hepatic steatosis by imaging or histology Lack of secondary causes of hepatic fat accumulation ( eg significant alcohol consumption ) ie diagnosis of exclusion. NAFL-NAFL is defined as the presence of of , 5 % hepatic steatosis without evidence of hepatocellular injury in the form of hepatocyte ballooning This has a relatively benign course and is largely asymptomatic NASH- NASH , 5 % hepatic steatosis - this reflects a more profound inflammatory liver damage with presence of lobular inflammation and helatocellular damage ( ballooning ) This carries a worse prognosis with risk of progressive fibrosis leading to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. NAFLD is the most common liver disorder in Western countries Due to rising obesity NAFLD is one of the most important cause of liver disease worldwide in adults and children Estimated to affect atleast 25 % - 30 % of adults in general population and 70-90 % of ...

N2 - Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is characterized by excessive fat accumulation in the liver (hepatic steatosis). Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is characterized by steatosis, liver cell injury, and inflammation. The mechanism of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is unknown but involves the development of insulin resistance, steatosis, inflammatory cytokines, and oxidative stress. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is associated with physical inactivity, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Screening is not recommended in the general population. The diagnosis is usually made after an incidental discovery of unexplained elevation of liver enzyme levels or when steatosis is noted on imaging (e.g., ultrasonography). Patients are often asymptomatic and the physical examination is often unremarkable. No single ...
BACKGROUND: Liver fibrosis is the main predictor of the progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Transient elastography (FibroScan), which measures liver stiffness, is a novel, noninvasive method to assess liver fibrosis. AIM: We investigated the usefulness of liver stiffness measurement in the evaluation of liver fibrosis in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease patients. STUDY POPULATION: A total of 97 nonalcoholic fatty liver disease patients. METHODS: Transient elastography was performed for liver stiffness measurement in 97 nonalcoholic fatty liver disease patients. And the relationship between histological parameters and liver stiffness measurement was studied by multivariate analysis. Moreover, we investigated the relationship between liver stiffness measurement and the serum levels of hyaluronic acid and type IV collagen 7s domain. RESULTS: The liver stiffness was well correlated with the stage of liver fibrosis (Kruskal-Wallis test p , 0.0001). The areas under the receiver-operating ...
Probiotics have been proposed as a treatment option for patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis because of their balancing role on the flora of the gut that may act as a potential source of hepatotoxic oxidative injury. This review did not identify any randomised clinical trials with probiotics in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Even if the results from pilot studies seem promising, randomised clinical trials are necessary to asses the clinical implication of probiotics therapy in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. ...
Pediatric NAFLD prevalence is estimated to be between 3% and 10%. This large interval of prevalence is influenced by the diagnostic method used to detect fatty liver: liver histology is the gold standard for diagnosing NAFLD, but slightly elevated liver enzyme values (aspartate amino¬transferase [AST], and alanine aminotransferase [ALT]) in the absence of excessive alcohol consumption and other causes of steatosis, together with the evidence of bright liver at abdominal ultrasound, are commonly used as a noninvasive test to screen for pediatric NAFLD.. NAFLD in children is associated with common features of the MS, especially insulin resistance, central obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The prevalence of NAFLD increases in hyperglycemic patients, and insulin resistance is more severe in individuals with NASH than in those with simple steatosis. NAFLD, and particularly NASH, is actually considered as the hepatic component of the MS.. The consumption of soft drinks can increase the prevalence ...

Youngs research team demonstrated that UPR activation in the brain, specifically in the forebrain, is causally linked to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Also known as hepatic steatosis, the research shows that brain ER stress can cause the disease independent of changes in body weight, food intake, and other factors.. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease impairs normal liver function and is linked to other diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The next step is to determine how and why ER stress occurs in the brain and how it causes fat build up in the liver.. Further research may give us another possible avenue for targeting fatty liver disease, said Young. The field has been focused on how we can improve the liver, for example, by developing drugs that target the liver. Our research suggests that we may also need to think about targeting the brain to treat non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.. ###.

Non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common liver disease that encompasses both simple steatosis and non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH.. There is currently no therapy that is of proven benefit for these liver disorders both of which are closely associated with insulin resistance and features of the metabolic syndrome such as obesity, hyperlipidaemia and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The first line approach to NAFLD is currently based on diet and lifestyle modification. However, dietary treatment is limited by the lack of compliance and the frequent regain of weight at follow-up..

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a condition in which there is excess fat stored in the liver, not because of heavy alcohol use. There are two forms of NAFLD: non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). People will generally be diagnosed with one form or the other, however, it is possible for someone to be diagnosed with one and then later, the other.. Non-alcoholic fatty liver:. A form of NAFLD in which there is fat stored in the liver, however, there is little or no inflammation. This form of NAFLD typically will not progress to cause liver damage or complications, though enlargement of the liver can cause pain.. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis:. A form of NAFLD where in addition to fat stored in the liver, there is also inflammation and liver damage. This inflammation and tissue damage can result in fibrosis or scarring of the liver. NASH may lead to permanent scarring of the liver, known as cirrhosis.. Risk Factors:. ...

A growing number of studies reported the connection between the level of serum ferritin (SFL) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, such connection was still disputable. The aim of our meta-analysis was to estimate SFL between the groups as below: patients with NAFLD against control group; non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) patients against control group; non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) patients against a control group and NASH patients vs NAFL patients. We screened the studies in PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Database and the Cochrane Central register controlled trials from the beginning to July 10, 2016 to find the studies indicated the connection between SFL and NAFLD (NAFL and/or NASH). Fourteen published studies which evaluate the SFL in NAFLD patients were selected. Higher SFL was noticed in NAFLD patients against control group (standardized mean difference [SMD] 1.01; 95% CI 0.89, 1.13), NASH patients against control group (SMD 1.21; 95% CI 1.00, 1.42), NAFL patients against
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is surging throughout the Western industrial world to become the most common liver disease. In the USA alone, over 30 million are afflicted with NAFLD. It can lead to cirrhosis, liver cancer, and even liver failure. NAFLD is not from boozing too much, nor is it from Hepatitis B or C. Its from our modern diet also known as SAD (standard American diet), which has spread to other nations and continents. Fatty liver occurs when fatty lipids occupy liver cells enough to exceed five percent of the livers weight. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is linked to metabolic syndrome or diabetes types 1 and 2, implying NAFLD has more to do with excessive sugar intake than saturated fats.

Title:IL-17 Axis Driven Inflammation in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Progression. VOLUME: 16 ISSUE: 12. Author(s):Daniel A Giles, Maria E Moreno-Fernandez and Senad Divanovic. Affiliation:Division of Immunobiology Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center TCHRF - Location S, Room #S.5.409 3333 Burnet Avenue Cincinnati, Ohio 45229-3039 U.S.A.. Keywords:IL-17, Inflammation, NAFLD, Obesity.. Abstract:Obesity is a primary risk factor for the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD, the most common chronic liver disease in the world, represents a spectrum of disorders that range from steatosis (NAFL) to steatohepatitis (NASH) to cirrhosis. It is anticipated that NAFLD will soon surpass chronic hepatitis C infection as the leading cause for needing liver transplantation. Despite its clinical and public health significance no specific therapies are available. Although the etiology of NAFLD is multifactorial and remains largely enigmatic, it is well accepted that ...
The pathogenesis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease has not been fully elucidated. The most widely supported theory implicates insulin resistance as the key mechanism leading to hepatic steatosis, and perhaps also to steatohepatitis. Others have proposed that a second hit, or additional oxidative injury, is required to manifest the necroinflammatory component of steatohepatitis. Hepatic iron, leptin, antioxidant deficiencies, and intestinal bacteria have all been suggested as potential oxidative stressors.. Most patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are asymptomatic, although some patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) may complain of fatigue, malaise, and vague right upper abdominal discomfort.[11] Patients are more likely to come to attention because laboratory testing revealed elevated liver aminotransferases or hepatic steatosis was detected incidentally on abdominal imaging.. Patients with NAFLD may have mild or moderate elevations in the aspartate ...

Y1 - 2004/12. N2 - Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a common cause of chronic liver disease, a common finding on liver biopsy in those patients with abnormal blood transaminase levels, and a common cause of cryptogenic cirrhosis in the United States. The prevalence of this disorder is expected to rise with the increase in obesity, and the clinical spectrum can range from simple steatosis (fatty liver) to cirrhosis of the liver. Insulin resistance is thought to be pivotal for the development of steatosis, and oxidative stress may be a potential factor that can promote hepatic necroinflammation and fibrosis. Preliminary studies have examined the role of oxidative stress and antioxidants in animal and human studies of this disorder. Efforts to improve the hepatic antioxidant system could be achieved ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Recent Concepts in Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. AU - Adams, Leon. AU - Angulo, P.. PY - 2005. Y1 - 2005. N2 - Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is present in up to one-third of the general population and in the majority of patients with metabolic risk factors such as obesity and diabetes. Insulin resistance is a key pathogenic factor resulting in hepatic fat accumulation. Recent evidence demonstrates NAFLD in turn exacerbates hepatic insulin resistance and often precedes glucose intolerance. Once hepatic steatosis is established, other factors, including oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, gut-derived lipopolysaccharide and adipocytokines, may promote hepatocellular damage, inflammation and progressive liver disease. Confirmation of the diagnosis of NAFLD can usually be achieved by imaging studies, however, staging the disease requires a liver biopsy. NAFLD is associated with an increased risk of all-cause death, probably because of complications of insulin ...

Hepatic steatosis is an abnormal lipid accumulation within hepatocytes, generally present in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) patients, a starting-point pathology currently associated with other clinical manifestations such as metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fibrosis, cirrhosis, and eventually hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatic steatosis in NAFLD may be induced by mechanisms such as insulin resistance, increased fatty acid uptake, a higher de novo lipogenesis from glucose or acetate, lower fatty acids oxidation and a decrease in fatty acid mobilization from liver. Among different therapeutic strategies appropriate for these patients, exercise has shown to be effective in reversing hepatic steatosis. However, the specific mechanisms involved in this response remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of this review is (1) to describe the mechanisms whereby exercise reverts hepatic steatosis, and (2) review the clinical outcomes of different exercise modalities in NAFLD ...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is now the most common liver disease in both adults and children worldwide. As a disease spectrum, NAFLD may progress from simple steatosis to steatohepatitis, advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis. An estimated 20-35% of the general population has steatosis, 10% of whom will develop the more progressive non-alcoholic steatohepatitis associated with markedly increased risk of cardiovascular- and liver-related mortality. Development of NAFLD is strongly linked to components of the metabolic syndrome including obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidaemia and type 2 diabetes. The recognition that NAFLD is an independent risk factor for CVD is a major public health concern. There is a great need for a sensitive non-invasive test for the early detection and assessment of the stage of NAFLD that could also be used to monitor response to treatment. The cellular and molecular aetiology of NAFLD is multi-factorial; genetic polymorphisms influencing NAFLD have been ...

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common chronic liver disease worldwide. The increasing prevalence of NAFLD mirrors that of obesity and type 2 diabetes over the last two decades. In a two-way pathophysiologic relationship, NAFLD increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, while the latter promotes the progression of simple fatty liver to a more advanced form called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). NASH increases the risk of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which may require liver transplantation. With the absence of FDA-approved medications for NAFLD treatment, lifestyle intervention remains the only therapy. Lately, extensive research efforts have been aimed at modifying NASH fibrosis and developing noninvasive screening methods. We highlight the pathophysiologic relationships between NAFLD and type 2 diabetes, discuss disease recognition, models of care, and current and emerging therapies for NASH treatment.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) incorporates an extensive spectrum of histologic liver abnormalities, varying from simple triglyceride accumulation in hepatocytes non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and it is the most frequent chronic liver disease in the industrialized world. Beyond liver related complications such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, NAFLD is also an emerging risk factor for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Currently, lifestyle intervention including strategies to reduce body weight and to increase regular physical activity represents the mainstay of NAFLD management. Total caloric intake plays a very important role in both the development and the treatment of NAFLD; however, apart from the caloric restriction alone, modifying the quality of the diet and modulating either the macro- or micronutrient composition can also markedly affect the clinical evolution of NAFLD, offering a more realistic and feasible treatment

  • Alcoholic fatty liver disease is due to heavy alcohol use. (
  • Alcoholic fatty liver disease is the earliest stage of alcohol-related liver disease. (
  • Who is at risk for fatty liver disease? (
  • The cause of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is unknown. (
  • Alcoholic fatty liver disease only happens in people who are heavy drinkers, especially those who have been drinking for a long period of time. (
  • What are the symptoms of fatty liver disease? (
  • Both NAFLD and alcoholic fatty liver disease are usually silent diseases with few or no symptoms. (
  • How is fatty liver disease diagnosed? (
  • Because there are often no symptoms, it is not easy to find fatty liver disease. (
  • As part of the medical history, your doctor will ask about your alcohol use, to find out whether fat in your liver is a sign of alcoholic fatty liver disease or nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD). (
  • What are the treatments for fatty liver disease? (
  • However, some studies show higher levels of activation of Hedgehog pathways in patients with the most advanced fatty liver disease. (
  • [ 1 ] Tripodi et al reported that in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a procoagulant imbalance progresses from steatosis to metabolic cirrhosis, which may be caused by an increase in factor VIII and a reduction of protein C. (
  • [ 2 ] The investigators speculated that this imbalance could play a role in the risk for cardiovascular disease and liver fibrosis, conditions commonly associated with NAFLD. (
  • In patients with alcoholic liver disease, the serum leptin level appears to be independently correlated with the grade of steatosis. (
  • The condition most commonly associated with fatty liver disease is metabolic syndrome. (
  • Oxidative stress and inflammation are involved in the pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). (
  • the presence of two of the three following diagnostic criteria of the fatty liver disease: increased hepatic echogenicity compared to the spleen or the kidneys, blurring of liver vasculature and deep attenuation of the ultrasonographic signal. (
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most prevalent liver disease and advanced fibrosis is the most important predictor of mortality in NAFLD. (
  • Elevated immunoglobulin (Ig)-A levels and its relationship with fibrosis in alcoholic liver disease (ALD) were known. (
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) shows similar histology and pathophysiology with ALD. (
  • This study determined the prevalence and clinical features of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease over a 6 year period in a patient population. (
  • Patients diagnosed with fatty liver disease by ultrasound and/or liver biopsy between June 2006 to June 2012 at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Jamaica were reviewed. (
  • In the study, mice engineered to have a particular immune deficiency developed fatty liver disease and got fatter when fed a Western-style diet. (
  • But strikingly, when these immune-deficient mice were put in the same cage as healthy mice, the healthy mice started to come down with symptoms of liver disease, and also got fatter. (
  • We normally live in symbiosis with the bacteria in our guts , but in the study, the number of "bad," disease-associated bacteria increased 1,000-fold in mice with immune problems, Flavell said. (
  • Fatty liver disease is very common among obese people, affecting 75 percent to 100 percent of the obese population, the researchers say. (
  • Previously, if two family members living in the same household both developed liver disease or became obese, people would have blamed genetics. (
  • If the findings apply to people, they would suggest we need to take approaches to obesity and fatty liver disease that address gut microorganisms - perhaps antibiotics or probiotics - in addition to traditional treatments, Flavell said. (
  • This is a very thought-provoking study that underlines the role of the bugs that we all carry inside us in determining our susceptibility to liver disease and its complications," said Dr. Jasmohan Bajaj, an associate professor of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition at Virginia Commonwealth University, who was not involved in the study. (
  • More work is needed in humans, who are much more complex than mice, to understand the role of gut bacteria in liver disease, but "these experiments form a key step forward," Bajaj said. (
  • Alterations in gut microbes may increase the susceptibility to obesity and fatty liver disease and also make it possible to spread these diseases, at least in mice. (
  • If you've been diagnosed with fatty liver disease, eating more fat might seem like the last thing you want to do. (
  • Roughly 80 to 100 millio n Americans have nonalcoholic, fatty liver disease (NAFLD), making it the most common form of liver disease in the country. (
  • Another suspected source of fatty liver disease is polyunsaturated fats, such as soybean oil, corn oil, and oils made from seeds such as sunflower oil, canola oil and safflower oil. (
  • Although it sounds counterintuitive, eating a high-fat, low carb diet has shown promise to reverse fatty liver disease. (
  • However, when you have fatty liver disease and are thinking about going keto, it's imperative to consult a medical professional. (
  • Regular consumption of sugared beverages is associated with a greater prevalence of fatty liver disease, even after adjusting for body mass index, according to a large observational study. (
  • Specifically, adults who drank more than one sugar-sweetened drink per day were 55% (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.03 - 2.35) more likely than nonconsumers to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in an analysis of data from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute's Framingham Heart Study's Offspring and Third Generation cohorts. (
  • The authors found a dose-response relationship between SSB consumption and fatty liver disease in a multivariate analysis, adjusted for age, sex, alcohol and diet soda intake, and body mass index. (
  • Although adjusting for body mass index did not attenuate the elevated risk for fatty liver disease among SSB consumers, SSB consumption was linked to the volume of fat in the liver among overweight and obese individuals. (
  • Although the specific effects of sugar intake on the development of fatty liver disease, particularly after long-term consumption, is not yet fully understood, "[t]he present study contributes to the existing literature by illustrating that regular consumption of SSB is associated with greater prevalence of fatty liver disease, particularly in overweight and obese individuals," the authors write. (
  • This project will use our newly-developed and novel diagnostic tools [computer tomography (CT)-based and electronic health record (EHR)-based] to identify members of the World Trade Center (WTC) General Responder Cohort (GRC) who have evidence of toxicant-associated fatty liver disease (TAFLD) and liver cancer.

  • Long-chain fatty acids take longer to metabolize in your system than do short- or medium-chain fatty acids and are often deposited as fat in the body. (
  • In a healthy body, the liver removes toxins and produces bile, a protein that breaks down fat into fatty acids so that they can be digested. (
  • The lack of protein leads to the deficiency of amino acids that are needed by the liver for the conversion of fat to phospholipids, lipoproteins and to transport fat/ cholesterol from the cells by apoproteins. (
  • A complex backdrop involves adipokines, metabolites [i.e., free fatty acids (FFAs)], cell-derived fragments, all released by damaged cells and metabolic disrupted organs, such as liver and adipose tissue ( 1 , 2 ). (
  • The addition of bile acids to feed can prevent and treat fatty liver, reduce the incidence of ketosis and increase milk production. (
  • In that case, cows can only use body fat, so a large amount of non-esterified fatty acids enters the liver. (
  • Bile acids are a substance with various biological activities, which can be used to ensure the health of the cow liver. (
  • First , they relieve the burden on the liver, so that non-esterified fatty acids and sugar precursors can be converted into energy in a timely manner, which solves the problem of a negative energy balance. (
  • Second, bile acids cause hepatocytes to secrete VLDL and transport fat deposits in the liver in time to prevent a large amount of fat accumulation in the liver. (
  • Bile acids are a feed additive that can be used to protect the liver and intestines, which can effectively guarantee the health of the cow's energy engine: the liver. (
