Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the leading cause of chronic liver disease in both adults and children. Along with obesity and the metabolic syndrome, genetic predisposition influences the progression of NAFLD. Here, we investigated the effect of lifespan/healthspan-related single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on metabolically associated fatty liver disease in children.

Abstract

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the leading cause of chronic liver disease in both adults and children. Along with obesity and the metabolic syndrome, genetic predisposition influences the progression of NAFLD. Here, we investigated the effect of lifespan/healthspan-related single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on metabolically associated fatty liver disease in children.
