Even Lean People With HIV Can Get Fatty Liver Disease
« on: November 03, 2020, 01:23:23 pm »
Almost a quarter of lean people living with HIV had evidence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in a recent study, and nearly one in five of them developed substantial liver fibrosis, putting them at higher risk for cirrhosis and liver cancer, according to a recent study.

NAFLD and its more severe form, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), are responsible for a growing proportion of advanced liver disease worldwide, and studies have shown that the condition is common among people living with HIV. Although often associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome—a constellation of cardiovascular risk factors including abnormal blood sugar and blood fat levels, hypertension (high blood pressure) and increased abdominal girth—fatty liver disease can also occur in people of normal weight.
