Weight Loss and Aminotransferase Levels
Aminotransferases is an ezyme found in liver, heart, muscle, kidney, and brain and released if any one of these tissues is damaged. High levels of Aminotransferase is an indication of liver and muscle disease.
In a study of 59 women with with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) were randomly enrolled in a non-controlled clinical intervention study to receive either LCD or LFD during six months by From the Biomedical Research Unit, Mexican Social Security Institute and the Research Group on Diabetes and Chronic Illnesses, Durango, Mexico., researchers found The weight loss was 5.7 and 5.5% for women in the LCD LFD groups. Although the decrease of AST (31.7 and 22.4%) and ALT (41 and 33.3%) levels was more elevated in the women of LCD group, as compared with the LFD group, there were not significant statistical differences.
Conclusions. Our results show that weight loss, irrespective of the type of diet, reduces aminotransferase levels in obese women with NAFLD. (1)
This result indicates that weight loss reduces the risk of liver damage and disease.
