OBJECTIVE Overweight and obesity are major risk factors for the development of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, a minority of NAFLD patients have a body mass index (BMI) <25 kg/m(2) (lean NAFLD). We sought to investigate whether significant differences exist between lean NAFLD and more common forms of NAFLD associated with overweight/obesity. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 483 consecutive patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD were enrolled. Lean NAFLD was defined as having a… CONTINUE READING
