NVDO – Compromised BCAA metabolism in humans with non-alcoholic fatty liver and/or type 2 diabetes is not affected by a 12-week exercise program

Froukje Vanweert presented during the NVDO with her research on compromised BCAA metabolism in humans with non-alcoholic fatty liver and/or type 2 diabetes. Although the association between systemic BCAA and IHL, exercise training-induced reduction in IHL seemed not to be related to changes in BCAA. To conclude, moderate to high physical activity and exercise training seem not to be effective strategies to improve BCAA metabolism in metabolically compromised people.
