Infant nutrition and maternal obesity influence the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in adolescents.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common liver disorder in which there is too much fat in the liver of people who do not consume excessive amounts of alcohol. In this large study, researchers found that infants who consumed breast milk for less than 6 months before starting infant formula milk, infants who were obese as teenagers or had mothers who were obese at the start of pregnancy, were much more likely to have NAFLD at 17 years of age. Based on their findings, researchers consider that reducing the risk of NAFLD in teenagers needs to start before birth, by encouraging normal body mass index before pregnancy, as well as breastfeeding without infant formula milk consumption for the first 6 months of life...

Coffee has anti-inflammatory and hepato-protective properties but its effect on mortality risk has never been investigated in patients co-infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). This study shows that elevated coffee consumption (≥3 cups/day) halves all-cause mortality risk in patients co-infected with HIV-HCV. The benefits of coffee extracts and supplementing dietary intake with other anti-inflammatory compounds need to be evaluated in this population.... Read more @ https://liverwellness.ie/articles

Coffee and herbal tea consumption is associated with lower liver stiffness in the general population: The Rotterdam study.
Published in the Journal of Hepatology August 2017 Volume 67, Issue 2, Pages 339–348

The Rotterdam Study is a large on-going population study of suburban inhabitants of Rotterdam in whom data on liver stiffness, as proxy for liver fibrosis, presence of fatty liver on ultrasound and detailed information on coffee and tea consumption were obtained in 2,424 participants. The consumption of herbal tea and daily consumption of three or more cups of coffee was related to the presence of lower liver stiffness, independent of a great number of other lifestyle and environmental factors. Previous studies have found a protective effect of coffee on established liver disease and we now show for the first time that this effect is already measurable in the general population.

Study: Mortality and major clinical events increased in cirrhotic NAFLD patients compared with those having bridging fibrosis.

Globally, NAFLD is most common form of chronic liver disease and is projected to become leading cause of end-stage liver disease, liver transplantation, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Liver fibrosis (scaring) stage is independently associated with long-term overall and liver-related mortality, and with and liver-related morbidity. However, impact of fibrosis stage on natural course of NAFLD is not fully understood.

In a major international prospective cohort study conduction in Spain, Cuba, Australia, and Hong Kong reported at the recent AASLD liver meeting in Washington, DC, 458 patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD and bridging fibrosis (pre-cirrhosis) or cirrhosis were monitored to assess the relationship between stage of fibrosis and major hepatic and nonhepatic clinical outcomes, liver transplant and death in patients with NAFLD.

Main findings:
Long-term follow-up of patients with NAFLD found that transplantation-free survival was reduced in patients with compensated cirrhosis (stage F4) compared with those having bridging fibrosis (stage F3 or pre-cirrhosis). Mortality was higher for cirrhotic patients with Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) A6 vs CTP A5 disease. The likelihood of developing a first major clinical event increased with more advanced fibrosis stage.
