Metabolomics for NAFLD/NASH
Metabolites circulate throughout living systems to maintain all physiological processes, giving them a unique ability to help us decipher how living systems work. This includes mapping how our muscles, kidneys, and heart function. This knowledge can further our understanding of diseases like nonalcoholic fatty liver disease/nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NAFLD/NASH) and diabetes. Metabolites can also help define gene function, and metabolites such as glucose and cholesterol can be used to enhance decision-making.
This ebook details the challenges and drivers of NAFLD/NASH and exemplifies how metabolomics can be used to better understand this complex disease state.
