Abstract: 

Introduction: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) both have features that correlate them to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. On the other hand MetS and NAFLD are associated with each other. However, not all cases of NAFLD have MetS and vice versa. This study was aimed to compare the association of these two entities with Common Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) and presence of Carotid Plaque.
Methods: In a population-based study in Shiraz, Iran, asymptomatic adult inhabitants aged more than 20 years were selected through cluster random sampling and were screened for the presence of MetS, NAFLD, CIMT through fulfillment of clinical and para-clinical tests; including abdominal and cervical ultrasonography.
Data were analyzed in SPSS.
Results: Out of 820 participants, 76 (9.2%) had both NAFLD and MetS, 100 (12.1%) had only NAFLD and 90 (10.9%) had only MetS.21 (27.6%) of who had both diseases (OR, 1.5; 95% CI, 0.9-2.7; p=0.1), 30 (30%) of who had only NAFLD (OR, 2.1; 95%CI, 1.2-3.4; p=0.002) and 25 (27.7%) of who with only MetS (OR, 2; 95% CI, 1.2-3.4; p=0.007) had CIMT>0.8 mm. Atherosclerotic plaque of carotid was detected in 9 (11.8%) of patients with NAFLD and MetS (OR, 1; 95% CI, 0.8-3.8; p=0.1), in 11 (11%) of only NAFLD cases (OR, 2.3; 95% CI, 1.1-4.9; p=0.02) and in 13 (14.4%) of who with only MetS (OR, 3.2; 95% CI, 1.6-6.7; p=0.001).
Conclusion: NAFLD and MetS have the same association with CIMT>0.8 mm. However, patients with only MetS has 1.4 times more susceptibility to atherosclerotic plaque of carotid compared to who with only NAFLD.
