Summary of ESR Project
For project ESR 11, we will test the concept that a lifestyle and dietary intervention program, including the prescription of a Mediterranean diet improves the individual health status, including liver function, in patients with NAFLD and metabolic syndrome. We hypothesize that the intervention will lead to improvement of clinical, ultrasonography, anthropometric, and biochemical features of NAFLD/NASH as well as of intestinal permeability and faecal microbiota.
