Abstract

Copper is an essential trace element involved in oxidative stress reactions and energy metabolism. While nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is closely related to metabolic dysfunction, the role of copper in the development of simple steatosis (NAFL) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is still unclear. We aimed to compare serum copper levels between patients with simple steatosis and those with NASH.
