Alcohol abstinence may be necessary to induce changes in liver lipids

May 23, 2017

After 12 weeks of exercise without weight change or reduction of alcohol, patients with obesity who consume alcohol increased lean body mass, reduced fat mass and reduced cytokeratin-18, but no effect on liver lipid was seen, according to results of a recently published study.

“Despite the multiplicative effects of alcohol and obesity, lifestyle studies in [nonalcoholic fatty liver disease] have focused on people who, by definition, do not consume alcohol,” the researchers wrote. “[This study examined] the effects of exercise on liver lipid, metabolism and liver function in overweight/obese sedentary adults consuming alcohol.”
