Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is recognized in 20-30% of general population but among the people with impaired glucose metabolism this fracture is about 70-90%. There are numerous pieces of research proving significant differentiation of various risk factors of diseases among men and women. The aim of this study is to estimate differences in NAFLD determinants with respect to patients’ sex. In this study 184 patients were examined, 77 women and 107 men. Based on statistic analysis it was found out that sex is significant determinant of NAFLD.
