Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Effects of Siliphos-Selenium-Methionine-Alpha Lipoic Acid in Patients With Fatty Liver and Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis
Official Title  ICMJE Biochemical and Echosonographic Impacts Using Siliphos-Selenium-Methionine-Alpha Lipoic Acid + Metformin Versus Metformin in Patients With Fatty Liver and Steatohepatitis
Brief Summary

Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis represents 10 - 15% total cases of hepatic cirrhosis. In the upcoming years, the economic burden of this disease will increase and will mean an important problem for our health system due to obesity epidemic.

There are several treatments for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis; however, none of them have overcome a healthy lifestyle including diet, exercise and some drugs related with insulin metabolism.

There after, using hepatoprotective drugs and antioxidants have been recommended as an eligible therapy to reduce the progression from fatty liver to steatohepatitis and cirrhosis. Being this approach not only an experimental item yet but also an unavoidable reality.

The purpose of this randomized controlled study is explore the effects of siliphos-selenium-methionine-alpha lipoic acid + metformin versus metformin in patients with fatty liver and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis about biochemical and echosonographic parameters.
