Saturated fat is more metabolically harmful for the human liver than unsaturated fat or simple sugars

Abstract:

Objective

Weight gain predisposes to increased intrahepatic triglycerides (IHTG) and insulin resistance (IR), but these do not occur in all obese subjects. Adipose tissue lipolysis and hepatic de novo lipogenesis (DNL) are the main pathways contributing to IHTG, while ceramides, which synthesis is induced by saturated fatty acids and endotoxin, are key mediators of IR. We hypothesized that dietary macronutrient composition influences the mechanisms and magnitude of weight gain-in...
