Fatty liver disease symptoms: Doctors share eight warning signs it is 'critical'

DR AMEET DHAR and Dr Nowlan Selvapatt spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about non-alcoholic fatty liver disease . As the name suggests, this condition isn't related to alcohol consumption; instead, it's to do with fat.

World J Hepatol. 2021 Aug 27;13(8):916-925. doi: 10.4254/wjh.v13.i8.916.ABSTRACTThe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has swept through nations, crippled economies and caused millions of deaths worldwide. Many people diagnosed with COVID-19 infections are often found to develop liver injury, which, in a small portion of patients, progresses to severe liver disease. Liver injury in the form of elevated transaminases, hyperbilirubinemia and alterations in serum albumin has been observed to be higher in patients with severe forms of the disease. Those who already have insult to the liver from chronic disease, such ...

Alcohol abuse and high-fat diet–induced liver diseases have been the most prevalent chronic liver diseases and the leading reasons for liver transplantation around the world. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a botanical component extracted from marijuana plants without psychoactive impact. In our previous reports, we found that CBD can prevent fatty liver induced by Lieber–DeCarli ethanol diet or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) induced by high-fat high-cholesterol diet. The current work is a further study on whether CBD can alleviate liver injuries induced by ethanol plus high-fat high-cholesterol diet (EHFD), wh...

Using a clinically actionable threshold for alanine aminotransferase to define suspected non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in US children with obesity, the risk of suspected NAFLD was highest for Asian and Hispanic race/ethnicity, male sex, and severe obesity.

Ann Hepatol. 2021 Sep 18:100534. doi: 10.1016/j.aohep.2021.100534. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAlternative splicing produces complex and dynamic changes in the protein isoforms that are necessary for the proper biological functioning of the metabolic pathways involved in liver development and hepatocyte homeostasis. Changes in the physiological state of alternatively spliced forms are increasingly linked to liver pathologies. This may occur when the expression or function of the set of proteins controlling the alternative splicing processes are altered by external effectors such as oxidative stress and other environmenta...

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Studies examining the association of coronary heart disease (CHD) and NAFLD are cofounded by various cardiometabolic factors particularly diabetes and body mass index. Hence, we seek to explore such association by investigating the global prevalence, independent risk factors and influence of steatosis grade on manifestation of CHD among patients with NAFLD.

Koskinas Cell senescence constitutes a physiological process that serves as protection from malignant transformation of cells. However, recent scientific discoveries also identify cell senescence as pivotal in hepatocellular cancer (HCC) biology. The review herein aimed to accumulate evidence on senescence as a mediator of HCC occurrence in hepatitis B (HBV), C (HCV) virus infections, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). In HBV infection, the carcinogenic HBV X protein frequently mutates during chronic infection, and subsequently exhibits different effects on senescence. In HCV infection, senescent non-funct...

Conclusion: ATR treatment blocks ANT2 expression, promotes the activation of AMPK, then decreases the mTOR activity, and finally promotes autophagosomes formation, thus accelerating the degradation of HFD-induced accumulated lipids in the liver. This will provide new therapeutic ideas and experimental data for clinical prevention and treatment of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
