Background: The world is now in the process of passing on health to non-diseases chronic, like non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) is a major cause of changes in the lifestyle of people. This study aims to evaluate the effects of lifestyle on fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Methods: For this critical review, we identified articles by searching original studies and review articles published in peer reviewed journals indexed in PubMed, Scopus, Proquest, Magiran and Sid between 2008 and 2018 were eligible for this study. The comprehensive electronic literature search included the use of key words: Non-alcoholic fatty liver, Lifestyle, Metabolic syndrome. Of more than 262 articles found14 were considered to be relevant to the scope of this critical review.
Discussion: Onset and continuation of fatty liver in NAFLD, beyond food and exercise quantity and feature, is seemingly associated also with other aspects of lifestyle. Among them sleep shortage, lower daily frequency of meals and cigarette smoking are associated with fatty liver.
Conclusion: Targeting lifestyle modification in people with NAFLD is vitally important, not only due to the high disease prevalence but also since excess liver fat is an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease and T2DM. Reducing liver fat and its mediators should be beneficial for delaying or preventing the onset of these life-threatening conditions which in turn reduces the burden placed on health services
