The #triglyceride- #glucose index is associated with the severity of hepatic #steatosis and the presence of liver #fibrosis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a cross-sectional study in Chinese adults

The triglyceride-glucose index (TyG) is a reliable predictor of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Its association with the severity of hepatic steatosis and liver fibrosis in NAFLD is poorly understood. This study evaluated the relationship between these factors in NAFLD. ..The TyG index was significantly correlated with the severity of hepatic steatosis and the presence of liver fibrosis in patients with NAFLD. TyG quartile values … Continue reading The #triglyceride- #glucose index is associated with the severity of hepatic #steatosis and the presence of liver #fibrosis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a cross-sectional study in Chinese adults

#Hyperglycaemia is associated with impaired muscle signalling and #aerobic adaptation to exercise

Increased aerobic exercise capacity, as a result of exercise training, has important health benefits. However, some individuals are resistant to improvements in exercise capacity, probably due to undetermined genetic and environmental factors. Here, we show that exercise-induced improvements in aerobic capacity are blunted and aerobic remodelling of skeletal muscle is impaired in several animal models associated with chronic hyperglycaemia. Our data point to chronic hyperglycaemia … Continue reading #Hyperglycaemia is associated with impaired muscle signalling and #aerobic adaptation to exercise
