Objective:Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with abnormalities in basal glucose and free fatty acid (FFA) metabolism, multi-organ insulin resistance and alterations in lipoprotein kinetics. These metabolic outcomes can be evaluated in vivo by using stable isotopically labeled tracer methods. An understanding of the reproducibility of these measures is necessary to ensure adequate statistical power in studies designed to evaluate metabolic function in subjects with NAFLD… CONTINUE READING
