Objectives: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is closely associated with diseases, such as obesity, diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, which are characterized by insulin resistance. NAFLD is thought to be a manifestation of metabolic syndrome in the liver. Liver fibrosis has a high prognostic significance in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
