“Obesity has been linked not only to initial stages of the [non-alcoholic fatty liver] disease, i.e., simple steatosis (SS), but also to its severity.From a clinical point of view, obesity has increased morbidity and mortality when combined with NAFLD [non-alcholic fatty liver disease], owing to cardiovascular and liver-specific mortality, including higher HCC [liver cancer] risk.
