Former Brexit MP DAVID DAVIS reveals the low-carb diet that helped transform his health 

DAVID DAVIS:A year ago, after I resigned from my Cabinet job as Brexit Secretary, I had a routine medical. The doctor frowned, I had non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

Publication date: Available online 17 October 2019Source: Trends in Endocrinology &MetabolismAuthor(s): Daniela Stols-Gonçalves, G. Kees Hovingh, Max Nieuwdorp, Adriaan G. HolleboomThe prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is strongly increasing and may put patients at increased risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (asCVD). Both disease phenotypes often co-occur, in the case of obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus type 2, and the metabolic syndrome. We explore the pathogenesis of NAFLD, the epidemiology of asCVD in NAFLD patients, shared drivers of both phenotypes, and fact...

Recent studies have identified a genetic variant rs641738 near two genes encoding membrane boundO-acyltransferase domain-containing 7 (MBOAT7) and transmembrane channel-like 4 (TMC4) that associate with increased risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), alcohol-related cirrhosis, and liver fibrosis in those infected with viral hepatitis1-7. Based on hepatic expression quantitative trait loci analysis it has been suggested thatMBOAT7 loss of function promotes liver disease progression1-7, but this has never been formally tested. Here we show thatMboat7 loss, but notTmc4, in mi...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is common and related to obesity and insulin resistance. Iron metabolism is impaired in obese individuals and iron deficiency has been associated with physical inactivity. We investigated whether iron bioavailability is reduced in patients with NAFLD and contributes to reduced cardiorespiratory fitness.
