Change in intrahepatocellular lipid (IHCL) at weeks 9 and 18 in inulin and cellulose groups. Analysis was done by ANCOVA with change in body weight as a covariate. IHCL was significantly reduced in subjects randomised to the inulin supplement compared to the cellulose at 9 (−9.6 ± 2.8 %, n = 10 vs −0.5 ± 2.7 %, n = 9, p < 0.04) and 18 weeks (−10.0 ± 2.6 %, n = 9 vs −2.3 ± 2.5 %, n = 5, p = 0.02). ANCOVA: analysis of covariance; IHCL: intrahepatocellular lipid
