Fatty liver, also known as fatty liver disease (FLD), is a reversible condition where large vacuoles of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells via the process of steatosis (i.e. abnormal retention of lipids within a cell).
For the first time, DNA mutations in liver cells have been identified that impact metabolism and insulin sensitivity in patients with liver disease.
Results of national research pinpointed potential biomarkers that could ultimately be employed for the diagnosis of progressive stages of liver disease.
Time-restricted eating (TRE) is a dietary regimen in which eating is restricted to particular hours. It has received great attention in weight-loss circles.
RNA molecules while carrying genetic instructions from DNA to the protein-making machinery of cells could help guard against non-alcoholic fatty liver.
Chronic alcohol abuse and hepatitis can injure the liver and lead to fibrosis, the buildup of collagen and scar tissue. As a potential approach to treating liver fibrosis, University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers and their collaborators are looking for ways to stop liver cells from producing collagen.
Scientists discovered 22 lipids in the blood plasma of schizophrenia patients that were linked to slower symptom improvement over time.
Researchers from the EMBL and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) demonstrated a new technique to create metabolic profiles of individual cells.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. NAFLD patients are at higher risk of developing Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which causes severe and chronic liver inflammation, fibrosis and liver damage.
A team of researchers led by Thaddeus Stappenbeck discovered that a high-fat, high-sugar diet relates to reduced intestinal immune cell activity in mice.
A study by researchers proposes that disease-driving B cells—a kind of white blood cell—have a role in the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Consumption of a diet with high fat levels increases the risk of fatty liver, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and type 2 diabetes.
The production of fat in the human body is essentially regulated by gut hormones.
A recent study by researchers at the University of Jyväskylä was successful in partially preventing fatty liver disease in rats.
Liver cancer from too much fat accumulation in the liver has been increasing in many countries including Japan. In order to change this unfortunate state of affairs, it is important to improve the prognosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
A University of Massachusetts Amherst environmental health scientist has used an unprecedented objective approach to identify which molecular mechanisms in mammals are the most sensitive to chemical exposures.
Dietary supplementation of fatty acids produced from microalgae have wide-reaching health benefits for humans, including the ability to reduce obesity, diabetes and fatty liver disease, preventing hair loss, and assisting wounds to heal.
A diet high in sugar during adulthood is associated with weight gain, and has also been linked to risk of type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and heart disease. New research shows that when consumed by moms during the breastfeeding period, a high sugar diet can also impact developmental outcomes during infancy.
Excessive consumption of fructose -; a sweetener ubiquitous in the American diet -; can result in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which is comparably abundant in the United States.
A new study, published in Nutrition and Metabolism, from researchers with the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Nutrition Obesity Research Center observed improvements in body composition, fat distribution and metabolic health in response to an eight-week, very low-carbohydrate diet.
People may go to great lengths to fight aging, but this process is a part of life.
