NAFLD, cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease share a common pathophysiology including insulin resistance, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, dysbiosis and genetic susceptibilities. The aim of this review by C. M. Perdomo et al...
This retrospective study by T. Mori et al. (Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, China) aimed to investigate NAFLD frequency and identify factors associated with NAFLD presence at acute stroke admission.
The authors included stroke patients admitted from 2016 to 2019, within 24 h of onset...
This study aimed to investigate the association between serum uric acid level and NAFLD in 583 patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) hospitalised in the Department of Hepatology, Yantai Qishan Hospital (China). In this study, multivariate regression analyses demonstrated that after adjusting for confounding factors...
In this editorial, P. Manka Essen University Hospital, Germany) and W. K. Syn (Medical University of South Carolina, USA) comment a study by Benhammou and colleagues, who evaluated the effects of NAFLD risk factors including obesity and diabetes on the long-term outcomes of patients with HCV treated with direct-acting antivirals...
This study by C. C. Chen et al. (Department of Family Medicine, Asia University Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan) investigated the association between NAFLD, diagnosed by ultrasonography, and coronary artery calcium score as detected by computed tomography in general populations in 545 patients...
Consumption of diet rich in fat and cigarette smoking are independent risk factors of NASH and they often occur together in some populations. The present study by S. Fouda et al. (RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia) investigated the mechanisms of high fat diet and cigarette smoking, individually and in combination...
This study by H. Ali et al. (Rutgers University New Jersey Medical School, USA) aims to explore outcomes in 429,855 patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention with or without placement of drug-eluting stents to determine whether the concurrent diagnosis of NAFLD led to worse in-hospital outcomes...

The authors reviewed and screened references in order to estimate NAFLD prevalence in patients with type 1 diabetes, and to explore associated characteristics and outcomes. According to this review, NAFLD prevalence in patients with type 1 diabetes is considerable and is highly dependent on the specific diagnostic modality...
Little data are showing the association between NAFLD and hypertension in a large-scale cohort study. J. H. Roth et al. (Chungnam National University School of Medicine, Daejeon, Korea) evaluated the ability of the fatty liver index to predict the development of hypertension in healthy individuals, in a large cohort of 334,280 healthy individuals...
The relationship between NAFLD and chronic kidney disease has attracted much attention recently. NAFLD and chronic kidney disease may share common pathogenic mechanisms, such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia and obesity, and thus may potentially share same therapeutic targets. Growing evidence suggests...
Currently, no established hierarchy exists for the influence of metabolic risk factors on NAFLD progression. In this retrospective cohort study, V. J. H Yao et al. (CUNY School of Medicine/Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program, New York, USA) investigated and ranked the independent and combined effects of three major risk...
