Alterations in adipose tissue and hepatic lipid kinetics in obese men and women with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND & AIMS Steatosis in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is due to an imbalance between intrahepatic triglyceride (IHTG) production and export. The purpose of this study was to evaluate TG metabolism in adipose tissue and liver in NAFLD. METHODS Fatty acid, VLDL-TG, and VLDL-apolipoprotein B-100 (apoB100) kinetics were… (More)
