Prevalence of and risk factors for nonalcoholic fatty liver among administrative officers in shanghai



Digestive Disease Week Abstracts & Itinerary Planner : Abstract No M1386



Objective: To determine the prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver in a specific population of Shanghai by epidemiological survey, and analysis of risk factors for fatty liver. Methods: 4009 administrative officers who denied regular alcohol drinking participated in the survey from September 1 to November 30 in 1999, underwent physical examination and blood laboratory tests, of which 2583 were males, 1426 were females, the mean age of participants was 46+/-14 years, the range was 20-81 years. Diagnosis of fatty liver was based on established real-time ultrasonographic criteria. Results: The overall prevalence of fatty liver was 12.9%(516/4009), and the prevalence of fatty liver in males younger than 50 years old, was significantly higher than that of in females. But the difference between the sexes became less significant in people older than 50 years old . Multiple variant regression analysis demonstrated that the prevalence of fatty liver was positively correlated to several risk factors, including male sex, aged, hypertriglycernemia and /or hypercholesterolemia, impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes mellitus, hypertension, overweight or obesity(body mass index > 24kg/m2),central obesity(mailes:waist to hip ratio > 0.85; females:waist to hip ratio > 0.85), and hyperamintransferasemia. Conclusions: There is a high prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver among certain populations in Shanghai, of which, metabolic syndrome are closely relevant.
