BACKGROUND Triglycerides (TG) to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) ratio (TG/HDL-C) has been recommended for surrogates of insulin resistance. However, it remains to be elucidated the association between TG/HDL-C and incident fatty liver. AIMS To investigate the association between TG/HDL-C and incident fatty liver. METHODS We performed… CONTINUE READING
