Abstract

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) share risk factors, and recent meta-analysis confirmed that NAFLD is an independent risk factor for incident CKD.1 Genetic variants associated with NAFLD, such as patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing-3 (PNPLA3) rs7384092 and transmembrane 6 superfamily member 2 (TM6SF2) rs5854292,2 have been reported to be associated with renal function in NAFLD subjects.
