Abstract

Fatty liver disease can easily cause  detrimental  changes when it slolwly  progressess towards the aggressive stages of  liver fibrosis leading to cirrhosis, and it can also cause collateral damages in the form of   cardiovascular diseases and atherosclerotic disease. The main  purpose of this study is to analyze the correlation between the grading of fatty liver disease provided by the ultrasound with lipid profile work of the affected patient.  A comparative analytical study  was conducted on 138 patients affected with fatty liver disease,the patients were chosen by  convenient sampling technique. Study was conducted at Radiology Department of General Hospital Lahore and Sheikh Zayed Hospital Rahimyar khan during July 2019 to October 2019. Total 138 patients data were analyzed. Out of 138 males were 65 (47.1%) males and females were 73 (52.9%) w.The study indicated  that the total number of patients having grade 1 fatty liver was 84 (60.9%), patients having grade 2 fatty liver was 52 (37.7%) and patients having grade 3 fatty liver was 2 (1.4%). Out of 138 patients there were total  67 (48.6%)cases of patients with fatty liver disease and  out of 138 patients, 71 (51.4%) were considered normal .Female patients were allegedly found to be more effected with fatty liver than males and majority of patients fell into the category of grade1 fatty liver. Since the majority of the patient fell into the category of grade 1 of fatty liver disese and there lipid profile test also indicated towards normal values so the risk of developing any cardiovascular disease among the patients was mininal.
