Nutritional factors in the pathogenesis of alcoholic liver disease

An update

Abstract

There is little doubt that alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is a nutritional disease. It has been argued that ethanol is a direct liver toxin because of the formation of its metabolite, acetaldehyde, which forms adducts with proteins. However, the importance of acetaldehyde adducts in ALD pathogenesis is still at the theoretical level.
