The website clinicaltrials.gov is showing the start of a new study to look at the function of the liver in men with KD. Here are the links:
http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02124057
http://clinicalstudies.info.ni...i?A_2014-N-0099.html

The study is in a status of "currently recruiting participants" as of today's date (May 2014).

I hadn't previously realized that the liver might be affected by KD. The study objectives say:
quote:
Whether the liver is affected in SBMA is unclear. Preliminary analysis in SBMA patients has shown changes including increased hepatic fat, which requires additional investigation.

So apparently it's unclear whether the liver is affected or not; for now, it's just something to be aware of.
