The risk of hepatic steatosis may be reduced through changes to dietary intakes, but evidence is sparse, especially for dietary patterns including the Mediterranean diet. We investigated the association between adherence to the Mediterranean diet and prevalence of hepatic steatosis. Cross-sectional analysis of data from two population-based adult cohorts: the Fenland Study (England, n = 9645, 2005–2015) and CoLaus Study (Switzerland, n = 3957, 2009–2013). Habitual diet was assessed using cohort-...

Circulating levels of glycine have previously been associated with lower incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) but it remains uncertain if glycine plays an aetiological role. We present a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies for glycine in 80,003 participants and investigate the causality and potential mechanisms of the association between glycine and cardio-metabolic diseases using genetic approaches. We identify 27 genetic loci, of which 22 have not pr...

Background Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a major risk factor associated with cardiometabolic diseases, and a major contributor towards mortality and morbidity, given its rapidly rising prevalence worldwide. In experimental studies, trans-fatty acids (TFAs) exert harmful biologic effects that may affect T2D risk, but findings from observational studies remain inconclusive, especially for biomarkers which provide an objective advantage with less recall bias and estimation errors. By pooling multiple st...

Summary Background & aims Moderate alcohol intake is associated with reduced prevalence or incidence of fatty liver. However, whether or not the association is independent of dietary patterns remains unclear. We aimed to evaluate the cross-sectional association of alcohol intake with fatty liver after accounting for dietary patterns and obesity. Methods We assessed 4579 adults aged 30–79 years who participated in routine clinical examinations in St. Luke's International Hospital, Japan (January ...
