Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Two recent articles in Hepatology suggest that the problems of fructose-induced fibrosis severity in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or nonalcoholic hepatic steatosis (NASH) could be solved if their exposure were limited either directly through diet or indirectly through curcumin therapy. However, the evidence for a unique fructose effect is sufficiently weak.
