BACKGROUND & AIMS Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease has been defined by the presence of hepatic steatosis in the absence of other chronic liver diseases. We sought to determine whether obesity, insulin resistance, and the metabolic syndrome, which are the main risk factors for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, are associated with similar elevations in serum alanine aminotransferase activity in persons with and those without other causes of chronic liver disease.
