Entero-hepatic Lipid-signaling in the Metabolic Syndrome and NAFLD

The liver and intestine reciprocally cross-talk through lipid-signaling molecules to activate transcriptional networks and signaling cascades controlling the expression and activity of genes involved in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, energy expenditure, inflammation and fibrosis. This inter-organ signaling including an interplay with the gut microbiota impacts on pathophysiological conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, CVD and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and hence has potential therapeutic applications.

Alcohol Consumption in the Obese Diabetic Subject- How Much or How Little 

There is evidence that heavy alcohol intake accelerates the progression of liver disease in patients with metabolic syndrome (i.e. obesity and type 2 diabetes). While daily intake of a cup of wine could have beneficial effects in the general population, consumption of 3 or more drinks in obese patients promotes the development of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
