Objectives: To assess the correlation of BMI with liver enzymes in postmenopausal women. Methodology: The study was conducted on 100 postmenopausal women in the age group of 45-55 years. Subjects were divided into 3 subgroups: Normal, Overweight and Obese on the basis of BMI. Body weight and height was taken and BMI was calculated using Quetlet index. Early morning Blood samples were taken after a minimum of 8 hours of fasting for assessment of liver enzymes AST and ALT. All parameters were…

Body mass index and its correlation to metabolic and hormone parameters in postmenopausal Spanish women
TLDR
In this Spanish postmenopausal population BMI significantly increased with age, time since menopause and parity displaying significant correlations with hormonal and metabolic parameters; displaying an inverse correlation with HDL-C and SHBG levels.
Effect of Body Mass and other Factors on Serum Liver Enzyme Levels in Men Attending for Well Population Screening
TLDR
Increased body weight to be an important contributing factor to elevated serum liver enzyme values in men attending for well population screening, but the effect of obesity was particularly important in the case of ALT: the prevalence of increased ALT values in obese subjects was more than eight times that in those with normal weight.
Effect of menopausal status on body composition and abdominal fat distribution
TLDR
Examination of radiologic imaging techniques suggests that early-postmenopausal status is associated with a preferential increase in intra-abdominal fat that is independent of age and total body fat mass.
Influence of gender, BMI, and ethnicity on serum ALT levels of healthy students of a medical school.
TLDR
The need of taking into account parameters in a clinical interpretation of ALT level is suggested, with a major sex-difference in ALT value being higher in men than in women.
Determinants of Abnormal Liver Function Tests in Diabetes Patients in Myanmar
TLDR
Elevated ALT and AST are the markers for associated non alcoholic fatty liver disease in diabetes patients, and testing for A LT and AST, should be carried out to screen underlying fatty liver, especially in male diabetes patients with high BMI.
ABDOMINAL ADIPOSITY AND METABOLIC CONTROL IN PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS
TLDR
The results indicate that metabolic de-control in the diabetic state is observed with increases in both, BMI and WHR, however, the effect is more pronounced in type 2 diabetic subjects with high WHR.
The relationship between anthropometry and serum concentrations of alkaline phosphatase isoenzymes, liver-enzymes, albumin, and bilirubin.
TLDR
Findings suggest that serum ALP, particularly liver ALP, is derived from adipose and hepatic tissue, and between body mass index and ALP levels are higher in obese than in lean subjects.
Glucose tolerance of premenopausal women after menopause due to surgical removal of ovaries
TLDR
The impairment of carbohydrate metabolism due to an abrupt decrease in natural estrogen levels should be considered before removing the ovaries during hysterectomy in premenopausal patients.
Excess weight risk factor for alcoholic liver disease
TLDR
The results show that the presence of excess weight for at least 10 years is a risk factor for cirrhosis, AAH, and steatosis in patients with alcoholic liver disease.
Liver function in moderate obesity--study in 534 moderately obese subjects among 4613 male company employees.
TLDR
The results of this study clearly indicate that moderately obese subjects also have frequent liver dysfunction.
