SANCHEZ-MARTOS, Miguel Ángel et al. Individualized exercise prescription in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis: a case report. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2015, vol.107, n.3, pp.178-181. ISSN 1130-0108.

The effect of an individualized exercise programme on a non-alcoholic steatohepatitis case is presented. Before entering the programme the patient was treated with conventional recommendations on diet plus aerobic exercise during fourteen years, without major improvements of his analytical parameters. Two years after including him in a tailored exercise programme, aimed to fulfil the recommendations of the American College of Sports Medicine, his blood markers of liver dysfunction and cardio-metabolic risk tended to improve. Consequently, our data support the idea that in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis the exercise-based therapeutic interventions should be individualized taking into account the cardio-respiratory and muscular fitness of the patient, rather than using generic behavioural recommendations.
