Obesity: metabolically healthy obesity and NAFLD
Obesity is a risk factor for several noncommunicable diseases, but some individuals with obesity remain metabolically healthy throughout life; whether these individuals are at risk of developing NAFLD is uncertain. In a new study, Chang et al. showed a statistically significant, graded relationship between BMI and NAFLD in metabolically healthy individuals.

Abstract

Obesity is a risk factor for several noncommunicable diseases, but some individuals with obesity remain metabolically healthy throughout life; whether these individuals are at risk of developing NAFLD is uncertain. In a new study, Chang et al. showed a statistically significant, graded relationship between BMI and NAFLD in metabolically healthy individuals.
