Journal: The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

 Publication Date: 02/2019

Summary: Our data indicate that caloric restriction leads to a marked improvement in glucose metabolism and body-fat composition, including liver-fat content. The marked reduction in liver fat might be mediated via changes in ferritin levels. In the context of caloric restriction, there seems to be no additional beneficial impact of reduced red meat intake and increased fiber intake on the improvement in cardiometabolic risk parameters.

Creatine Supplementation Prevents the Accumulation of Fat in the Livers of Rats Fed a High-Fat Diet

URL: https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/141/10/1799/4630498

Journal: The Journal of Nutrition

Publication Date: 10/2011

 Summary: The study investigated the effects on fatty liver development of feeding rats a control diet, a high-fat diet or a high-fat diet supplemented with creatine. Liver fat increased in the rats fed a high-fat diet over 3 weeks. This effect was prevented by supplementing the high-fat diet with creatine.

Hyperinsulinemia Predicts Fatal Liver Cancer but Is Inversely Associated With Fatal Cancer at Some Other Sites

URL: https://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/24/5/843

Journal: Diabetes Care

Publication Date: 05/2001

 Summary: Observational study of nondiabetic French men. Peripheral hyperinsulinemia, indicative of very high portal insulin concentrations, predicted fatal liver cancer in these nondiabetic men, but was inversely associated with fatal lip, oral cavity, and pharynx cancer; stomach cancer; and larynx cancer
