DÄ internationalArchive9/2015Difficult-to-Understand Point
LNSLNS

This very well researched review article lists “states of hunger” as one of the possible causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. In this point, I do not fully understand the complex relationships involved. This phenomenon is also incomprehensible to me from a pathophysiological perspective. The opposite would be quite plausible. I think that many colleagues find it difficult to understand this point; therefore, I would like to ask the authors to briefly explain it.
