Thiazolidinediones reduce risk of NAFLD
Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) are beneficial for certain selected patients at risk of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), according to a study published in the Hepatology.
Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists are potential pharmacological treatment options for patients at risk of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Therefore, a group of researchers examined the association between the risk of NAFLD and the use of TZDs and GLP-1 receptor agonists compared with the use of sulfonylureas (SUs) and insulins. Additionally, the researchers calculated the incidence of HCC in users of TZDs and GLP-1 receptor agonists.
