Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD): a multisystem disease – part 2
It is well known that NAFLD and T2DM occur commonly together. Prof Byrne (Southampton, UK) discusses the latest findings showing that NAFLD is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular events. The aetiology of increased risk of CVD is complex but the atherogenic dyslipidaemia is important. Genotypes can increase severity of liver disease and diabetes, yet attenuate risk of CVD.
Professor Byrne trained as a clinical scientist in the UK and the US, at Cardiff, Cambridge and Stanford Universities. He undertook a PhD studying liver lipid metabolism at Cambridge University. He was a post-doctoral fellow at Stanford University and then an MRC fellow at Cambridge University.
