The Fatty Liver Index: a simple and accurate predictor of hepatic steatosis in the general population
TLDR
FLI is simple to obtain and may help physicians select subjects for liver ultrasonography and intensified lifestyle counseling, and researchers to select patients for epidemiologic studies, but validation of FLI in external populations is needed before it can be employed for these purposes. Expand
Epidemiology of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
TLDR
The majority of individuals with NAFLD do not develop NASH, and noninvasive markers such as the fatty liver index obtained from the Dionysos Study may be useful to screen forNAFLD in the general population. Expand
Prevalence of and risk factors for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: The Dionysos nutrition and liver study
TLDR
NAFLD is highly prevalent in the general population, is not associated with SLD, but is associated with many features of the metabolic syndrome. Expand
Cross-calibration of eight-polar bioelectrical impedance analysis versus dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry for the assessment of total and appendicular body composition in healthy subjects aged 21-82
TLDR
The attractive hypothesis that eight-polar BIA is influenced minimally by age and sex should be tested on larger samples including younger individuals. Expand
Crossvalidation of anthropometry against magnetic resonance imaging for the assessment of visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue in children
TLDR
WC can be considered a good predictor of VAT as well as BMI of SAT, and the importance of ethnicity and gender on VAT estimation is not negligible. Expand
Prolonged n‐3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation ameliorates hepatic steatosis in patients with non‐alcoholic fatty liver disease: a pilot study
TLDR
This data indicates that n‐3 long‐chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n‐3 PUFA) as peroxisome proliferator‐activated receptor‐α ligands in improving non‐alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in rodents is feasible in humans, although data in humans is still lacking. Expand
Accuracy of an eight-point tactile-electrode impedance method in the assessment of total body water
TLDR
Eight-polar BIA is a precise method that offers accurate estimates of TBW in healthy subjects and should undergo further studies of precision and its accuracy in assessing extracellular water and appendicular body composition should be determined. Expand
Docosahexaenoic acid supplementation decreases liver fat content in children with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: double-blind randomised controlled clinical trial
TLDR
DHA supplementation improves liver steatosis and insulin sensitivity in children with NAFLD and has no effect on alanine transaminase and body mass index. Expand
