Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an increasingly recognized medical condition that may progress to hepatic cirrhosis with liver failure. The pathologic picture resembles that of alcohol-induced liver injury, but it occurs in patients who do not abuse alcohol. NAFLD is more common among patients with evidence of insulin resistance. NAFLD refers to a wide spectrum of liver damage, ranging from simple steatosis to steatohepatitis, fibrosis, and cirrhosis. The clinical implications of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease following liver transplantation
TLDR
Early recognition with protocol liver biopsies and an effective preventive strategy by modifying known risk factors implicated in the recurrence of NASH would be the most effective way to curtail the progression ofNASH before an effective treatment can be found.
Pre-and-post transplant considerations in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
TLDR
An outline of NAFLD as indication for liver transplantation with a focus on the epidemiology, pathophysiology and risk factors associated with this disease is provided.
Novel Biomarkers For Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Associated Symptoms
TLDR
Evaluating various kinds of soluble biomarkers and the development of a novel, serum-based biomarker panel for NASH and NASH-related fibrosis and discovering novel, as-of-yet untested biomarkers that may be tied to the deregulation of cell signaling pathways in adipose tissue are presented.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in different populations: A clinical and epidemiological study - sample of São José do Rio Preto.
TLDR
The most frequent risk factors were MS and its variables: increased waist circumference, dyslipidemia and HBP and this underscores the importance of metabolic control in NAFLD and confirms its role as the hepatic component of metabolic syndrome.
Prevalence ratio of free fatty acid in obese group with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
TLDR
The prevalence ratio of FFA with cutoff value ≥2.66 nmol/mL in the obese group with NAFLD was 4.3 times higher than those withoutNAFLD (95% IC: 3.5 – 42.3; p<0.001).
Insulinemic Status and Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
  • Dr Azmeri Alam
  • Medicine
    Journal of Medical Science And clinical Research
  • 2018
TLDR
The present data leads to the suggestion that there is a strong association between insulin resistance and NAFLD, however, the question of whether hyperinsulinemia or insulin resistance is the primary disorder ofNAFLD remains unangered.
Portal vein hemodynamics in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
TLDR
The alteration in Doppler waveform pattern of portal vein with fatty liver population suggests reduced vascular compliance in the liver.
Relationship between alanine aminotransferase levels and metabolic syndrome in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
TLDR
A strong relationship between ALT levels and MS in NAFLD was found and revealed that the cluster of MS components might be the predictor for ALT elevations.
COMPARISON OF HEPATIC PROFILE IN PRE AND POSTOPERATIVE OF BARIATRIC SURGERY: PRIVATE VS PUBLIC NETWORK
TLDR
The non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in its advanced form is more prevalent in obese patients treated in the public network than in the treated at the private network and bariatric surgery may be important therapeutic option in both populations.
Prevalence of NAFLD in Type-2 Diabetic Patients in Rural Population of Muzaffarnagar Region
TLDR
The frequency of NAFLD is high in patients of Type 2 DM and its connection with Insulin Resistance is high, corresponding with the presence of Insulin resistance among T2DM.

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis in children
  • E. Roberts
  • Medicine
    Current gastroenterology reports
  • 2003
TLDR
Although much remains to be learned about pediatric NAFLD, it is already evident that children with NASH risk progressive liver damage, including cirrhosis, and the incidence of this pediatric liver disease is rising as childhood obesity becomes increasingly prevalent.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and obesity.
PURPOSE The aim of this review is to update concepts of the nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and to establish a relationship between this condition and obesity. METHODS By means of a
Prevalence of and Risk Factors for Hepatic Steatosis in Northern Italy
TLDR
Data indicate that obesity plays a greater role than excessive alcohol intake in inducing fatty liver, and the relative roles of obesity and alcohol abuse, alone and in combination, in inducing steatosis are explored.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: predictors of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and liver fibrosis in the severely obese.
TLDR
Moderate alcohol consumption seems to reduce the risk of NAFLD in the severely obese, possibly by reducing insulin resistance and systemic hypertension, features of the metabolic syndrome.
AGA technical review on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
TLDR
In this review, the existing literature regarding the nomenclature, clinical and histologic spectrum, natural history, diagnosis, and management of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease are discussed.
The spectrum of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: from steatosis to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.
TLDR
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFL) has been recognized only in the past 20 years, and management of weight, lipid levels, and glucose levels is recommended.
Expanding the natural history of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis: from cryptogenic cirrhosis to hepatocellular carcinoma.
TLDR
Features suggestive of NASH are more frequently observed in HCC arising in patients with CC than in age- and sex-matched HCC patients of well-defined viral or alcoholic etiology.
Design and validation of a histological scoring system for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
TLDR
A strong scoring system and NAS for NAFLD and NASH with reasonable inter‐rater reproducibility that should be useful for studies of both adults and children with any degree ofNAFLD are presented.
Ninety patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis: insulin resistance, familial tendency, and severity of disease
TLDR
It is hypothesized that NASH is a disorder of genetic etiology and is the hepatic manifestation of syndrome X, the insulin resistance syndrome, and presents over a wide age range.
