    Sammanfattning : Fatty liver has previously often been associated with excessive alcohol consumption. During the last two decades, the interest in fatty liver occurring in non-drinkers i.e. non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has increased dramatically. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease : Aspects on Diagnosis and Long-term Prognosis

    Författare :Patrik Nasr; Stergios Kechagias; Mattias Ekstedt; Peter Lundberg; Einar Stefán Björnsson; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease affecting approximately 25% of the global population and is commonly recognized as the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome. The histological spectrum of NAFLD ranges from isolated steatosis to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), with risk of developing fibrosis and subsequent cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

  3. 3. Liver-related complications and metabolic comorbidities during long-term follow-up of patients with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

    Sammanfattning : Background: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is highly associated with the metabolic syndrome, and due to increasing prevalence of for example obesity it is now the most common liver disease in the world. A minority progress to advanced fibrosis/cirrhosis, which is associated with increased mortality, but it is not entirely clear which patients who have an increased risk of fibrosis. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Microbial modulation of metabolic diseases

    Författare :Antonio Molinaro; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Microbiota; Glucose Metabolism; type 2 diabetes; NAFLD; non-alcoholic fatty liver disease;

    Sammanfattning : The gut microbiota, the ensemble of microorganisms living in the gastrointestinal tract, and the host have a mutualist relationship. Alterations of this delicate equilibrium can lead to changes in microbiota composition and/or function leading to the onset of metabolic diseases (e.g., type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases).

  5. 5. Genetic variants for liver fat accumulation and circulating triglyceride levels

    Författare :Ivana Stojkovic; Diabetes - kardiovaskulär sjukdom; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NAFLD; genetic variations; triglycerides; ALAT; dietary intake; type 2 diabetes; cardiovascular disease;

    Sammanfattning : Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), obesity and type 2 diabetes(T2D) are strongly associated and today their prevalence reaches epidemic proportions. NAFLD has a multi-factorial aetiology, both genetic and environmental factors are equally important. LÄS MER
