The relationship between nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and prolonged heart rate-corrected QT (QTc) interval, a risk factor for ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death, is currently unknown. Most people with NAFLD live with fat in their liver without developing liver damage. No significant differences were found in main demographic and laboratory data, including eGFR, between patients who did and did not have a liver ultrasound examination (data not shown). In some patients, genetic factors appear to be important. Primary NAFLD: common term for typical NAFLD associated with central obesity and/or type 2 diabetes (T2DM) or insulin resistance (IR), without another specific etiology. Transplant Surgeons Nancy L. Some medications can cause fatty liver.
Notably, these associations remained statistically significant even after controlling for several potential confounding factors, including a broad spectrum of classical CVD risk factors and metabolic syndrome
