TANGO study

Do you have high liver fat content? We’re looking for you!

Excessive fat accumulation in liver cells is called Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). It is increasingly common around the world and is closely associated with overweight and obesity. If left untreated, NAFLD may lead to inflammation that can eventually damage the liver.

Currently, the first line of treatment to reverse fatty liver is through weight loss via a combination of proper diet intake and increased physical activity.

We invite you to participate in the ecTopic fAt in siNGaporean (TANGO) study!

In TANGO, participants will undergo a 12-week lifestyle intervention, which includes receiving dietary advice and consuming our planned calorie-restricted meals – at no cost to you. We would like to find out if this intervention will help in reducing high liver fat content and improve the overall health and well-being of our participants.
