Excess Liver Fat: Snoring Is A Risk Factor Too!

Excess Liver Fat: Snoring Is A Risk Factor Too!

Around one-fourth of the world’s population has excessive fat accumulated in the liver, and a poor lifestyle is one of the reasons. If this situation leaves untreated, it can lead to serious health consequences.


The research found that people with poor night-time sleep and prolonged daytime nap have a high risk of developing excessive liver fat. A moderate sleep quality improvement is enough to lower the risk.


That study analyzed self-reported sleeping behaviors from 5011 adults with excessive liver fat. The results indicated that sleeping late, snoring, and nap time over 30 mins are related to the increased risk of excessive liver fat deposition with odds ratios of 1.37, 1.59, and 1.17, respectively. Those with poor night sleep and prolonged nap time demonstrated the highest risks among the participants. Sedentary lifestyles and central adiposity were associated with more pronounced negative consequences of inadequate sleep than were other factors. Moderate sleep quality interventions could reduce the risks by 29%.


The authors believed that the study has proven that improving sleep quality is sufficient to reduce the risk of excessive liver fat, especially for people with poor lifestyle behaviors. Given that most participants with poor sleep are undertreated, they urge more research to provide strategies to improve sleep.
