The pathophysiological significance of hepatic lipid accumulation in the absence of significant alcohol consumption is increasingly recognised. Thus, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is now considered the most common cause of liver enzyme elevation in Western countries.1 It is regarded as the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome (MS), characterised by central obesity and insulin resistance (IR), and resulting diabetes type 2, dyslipidaemia and hypertension.2 NAFLD… Expand
