Abstract

The prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) among US children and adolescents is rising, with diet identified as a risk factor. The clinical burden of pediatric NAFLD makes it a serious health concern. The aim of this review was to explore the association between fructose consumption, specifically sugar-sweetened beverage intake, and NAFLD and the effect of fructose on associated risk factors. The relationship that fructose may have with NAFLD and its related risk factors may highlight whether certain dietary constituents should be altered among those with NAFLD.
