Abstract

Liraglutide and Exenatide showed improvement in transaminases as well as histology in patients with NASH. Sitagliptin showed improvement in transaminases but limited studies are there to access its effect on histology. Further studies are needed to support use of newer anti-diabetic medications in patients with NAFLD.
