BACKGROUND Obesity and type 2 diabetes are well-known risk factors for the development of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, NAFLD is not rare in nonobese, nondiabetic adults. The aim of this study was to evaluate the metabolic significance of NAFLD in nonobese, nondiabetic adults. METHODS This study examined 768 nonobese (body mass index [BMI] [calculated as weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters], > or =18.5 and <30) (460 normal-weight and 308… CONTINUE READING

In the normal - weight ( BMI , > or = 18.5 and < 25 ) and overweight ( BMI , > or = 25 and < 30 ) groups , NAFLD was a significant predictor of insulin resistance and other metabolic disorders , including hypertriglyceridemia and hyperuricemia .
