Journal of the American Society of Hypertension, 07/27/2012
Chen JY et al. – Authors further found that waist circumference (odds ratio, 1.06; 95% confidence interval, 1.01-1.13; P < .05) was the only independent factor that predicted low CI (<median value) in patients with NAFLD. Central obesity was an important determinant both for increased arterial stiffness and hs-CRP in Patients with NAFLD.
