BACKGROUND Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) progresses from steatosis to inflammation, fibrosis, and cirrhosis. Although ALD has been associated with insulin resistance, it is unclear whether insulin resistance coincides with the development of steatosis. METHODS We studied the temporal relationship of steatosis and glucose homeostasis in mice fed a Lieber-DeCarli liquid control or ethanol (EtOH) diet for 2, 4, or 8 weeks. We studied the effects of alcohol consumption on energy balance, body… CONTINUE READING
