Diagnostic tools for diagnosis of #NAFLD and complications by Dr. Lomonaco #AACE2022 #endotwitter
#NAFLD has effects on other conditions including DM, CVD, CKD etc due to increased hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, proinflammatory factors etc
How do we screen for #NAFLD and find the ones with fibrosis? A lot will be missed if just checking transaminases. FIB-4 and NFS is a better screening tool

Fantastic lecture by @scottisaacsmd on the Fatty liver epidemic and introduction to the new AACE Fatty Liver Guidelines released today. First lecture by @scottisaacsmd #AACE2022 #endotwitter
NAFLD is a spectrum that includes NASH. First rule out secondary causes.
Difference between NAFL and NASH? NAFL is just the accumulation of fat w/o ballooning or much inflamation. NASH has hepatocyte changes from ballooning and inflammation. IIt is staged also based on fibrosis (F0-F4)

This one suggests that individuals with high serum microRNA-122 levels may be less responsive during diet/physical activity-induced weight loss, as far as hepatic fat content loss is concerned.
- In the current study of participants with abdominal obesity or dyslipidemia from an 18-month randomized, controlled diet and physical activity intervention trial, it was observed that serum miR-122 levels were positively associated with hepatic fat percentage at baseline.
- A greater elevation in miR-122 from baseline to 18 months was associated with a smaller reduction in hepatic fat content during the 18-month intervention process.

It's Monday and time for us @GoggleDocs to #takeover the @cardiomet_CE account for the next few days.

It's time to revisit the recent #EASD2021 conference.

The @GoggleDocs are a bunch of 🇬🇧 docs/🤓 who are fascinated about the cardio-metabolic conditions we are increasingly managing.

1/8 My latest teaspoon of sugar infogram is here!… … These represent the glycaemic load of portions of various foods to help you predict the glycaemic consequences of dietary choices. Based on this paper… The others will follow
2/8. I wanted to show that glucose can come from three sources: Naturally sugary foods. Foods with added sugar. Starchy foods that digest down into surprisingly large ammounts of glucose The glycaemic load of each food is re-worked out in terms of 4g. teaspoons of table sugar
3/8 This is the first infogram. Diet makes such a difference to #T2D This has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times. All have been translated into five languages so far. Find them and the translations here: There is no copyright so share at will.

Will start a string of pearls and 🔥🌶takes from recent papers #livertwitter #gitwitter #cirrhosis
This paper in #amjgastro compared refeeding @ 24 v48 hrs after endoscopic interventions for peptic ulcers. 24 hours was “not noninferior”. multiple limits
1️⃣ ⬆️mortality in 48h
2️⃣diff duration of iv ppi
My 🌶🌶 take: feed your patients when they want! ImageImageImageImage
This @LiverInt multinational study shows that noninvasive tests help sort high from low risk for liver-related events and, to a degree, ❤️events in #nafld

1/4: GRAPH OF THE WEEK! Abnormal liver function, fatty liver #NAFLD #NASH now affects 20% of the developed world BUT WHY? For years I thought it was drugs or alcohol, so did the Three gastroenterologists who saw this lady between 1996 and 2009 Look rapid improvement on low carb
2/4 Who knew but we make liver fat not from dietary fats but sugar and starchy carbs Its called De novo lipogenesis. Guess what insulin and glucose is involved, look… The liver fat produced is called triglyceride and is more important than I used to think
3/4 So its like insulin pushes blood glucose into liver cells which turn it into triglyceride. Over time the liver fills with this fat hence #fattyliver #NAFLD also inflammation may set in #NASH My free @rcgp podcast is here only 18 mins @MartinRCGP…

ALERT: Based on popular demand, #NAFLD #tweetorial for primary care starts here. I guess it's a risk of calling yourself the "hepatoMD".

Topics: What is #NAFLD? How to diagnose it? Who to worry about? Who to refer? How to monitor?

#medtwitter #FOAMed
#NAFLD is an umbrella term. On one end of the spectrum there is 'simple steatosis', and on the other end there is 'NASH'. NASH is the clinical entity liver folks worry about because it causes liver disease.
So what causes NAFLD?
Best way to think of it is as a metabolic disease caused by insulin resistance, that is caused by genetic/environmental/lifestyle factors leading to adiposity.
