Overweight Young Men May Have the Risk of Liver Disease Later
Excess weight at the age from 18 to 20 may be a signal that a man may have the risk of liver disease decades later, a large long-term study from Sweden suggests.
In their study, researchers followed more than 44,000 men conscripted for military service in 1969 and 1970 and discovered that those who were overweight as young men were 64% more likely to have serious problems with liver and liver-related deaths in the next 40 years compared to their counterparts with a healthy weight.
“Most likely, these teens already had non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) at the start of the study, or developed it down the road,” says the lead author, Dr. Hannes Hagstrom of the Center for Digestive Diseases at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. “We know that some persons with NAFLD do develop severe liver disease.”
