  • Hi Katy,

    Unfortunately we only deal with oncology nutrition and don't have enough knowledge about your condition to give you adequate advice.

    Sorry we can't help!

  • The biggest culprit for NAFLD is fructose. This low Gi sugar has to be processed by the liver before it can be used as glucose. Once glycogen stores are full, any excess carbohydrate is turned to fat.
