Core Tip Thyroid hormones help regulate of body weight, lipid metabolism, and insulin resistance. Therefore, thyroid hormones may have a role in the pathogenesis of non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Following a systematic review of human studies in the English language medical literature, eleven articles were found to address this relationship. Hypothyroidism appears to be an independent risk factor for NAFLD/NASH in some studies; however, other studies failed to find such an association. As the results of these studies are not consistent, further research is recommended to determine the relationship hypothyroidism and NAFLD/NASH and the underlying mechanisms.
