Effect Of Fenofibrate And Niacin On Intrahepatic Triglyceride Content, Very Low-density Lipoprotein Kinetics, And Insulin Action In Obese Subjects With Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Supplementation of extended-release niacin (500mg, titrating up to 2,000mg over three weeks) for a total of 16 weeks in obese subjects with NAFLD appeared to worsen insulin sensitivity. ApoB was not significantly reduced overall although the vLDL-ApoB complex was reduced alongside triglycerides and the vLDL-TG complex.
