Sex-specific differences in hepatic fat oxidation and synthesis may explain the higher propensity for NAFLD in men
Context and Objective: In most populations a greater proportion of men have hepatic steatosis than women. Sex-specific differences in hepatic dietary fatty acid (FA) metabolism have not been well characterized. We compared fasting and postprandial hepatic FA synthesis (de novo lipogenesis [DNL]) and oxidation in men and women.Expand abstract
Participants and Methods: Fasting and postprandial hepatic FA metabolism was studied in 22 healthy men (n = 11) and ...
