Can Modest Alcohol Intake Suppress Liver Fibrosis in Fatty Liver Disease?

Story by Medical News Bulletin.

There is no specific treatment for NAFLD, but patients are advised to avoid factors which may further damage the liver. They should follow a healthy lifestyle, maintain a normal body weight, and make sure that any co-existing medical conditions such as diabetes are well-controlled.

Whilst patients with AFLD are advised to stop drinking, some studies have suggested that moderate alcohol consumption may have a beneficial effect on patients with NAFLD.

Researchers in Japan investigated the relationship between alcohol intake and the cell changes seen in patients with NAFLD. They recently reported their findings in the journal PLoS ONE.
