In this trial involving nearly 24,000 participants Tianjin Chronic Low-Grade Systemic Inflammation and Health (TCLSIH) Cohort Study, researchers assessed the link between nut consumption and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the adult population via multivariable logistic regression. Utilizing a validated food frequency questionnaire, the investigators obtained information on dietary intake from all participants. NAFLD diagnosis was informed using abdominal ultrasonography. In all, the authors concluded that there was a significant connection between higher nut consumption and lower NAFLD prevalence. Even after further adjustment for blood lipids, glucose, and inflammation markers, these associations—although attenuated—remained significant.
