Trimming Liver Fat With Exercise


Research news from the American Diabetes Association 72nd Scientific Sessions
June 8–12, 2012 | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

In a study of more than 72,000 U.S. adults, researchers found that those who exercise are less likely to have signs of fatty liver disease than less active people. Some evidence suggests that nonalcoholic fatty liver disease may lead to type 2 diabetes and other conditions. Exercise trimmed liver fat equally in people of all body weights, highlighting the importance of physical activity at any size.

Safety Note: Check with your health care provider before making big changes in your exercise plan, which could require adjustments in your meds, foods, or other treatment.
