Obesity: A Disease
Episode 12: Article Reviews: Saturated Fat and the Human Liver
In this episode, OMA Chief Science Officer, Harold Bays, MD, FOMA Dipl. ABOM and Sara Karjoo, MD, Dipl. ABOM review the article Saturated Fat Is More Metabolically Harmful for the Human Liver Than Unsaturated Fat or Simple Sugars which evaluates if saturated fat is more metabolically harmful for the human liver than unsaturated fat or simple sugars. Topics covered include: how fat in liver is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and cancer, importance of early screening for progression of other diseases, and what to do as a clinician to treat non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
In our article review podcasts, we have carefully selected recent articles included in the latest version of the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA) Obesity Algorithm. We then discuss this new science with obesity experts.
