Abstract

Background and study aims: As the prevalence of obesity increased, obesity-related comorbidities such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) also increased. The aim of this study is to investigate the presence of intestinal inflammation by evaluating the faecal calprotectin (FC) level in children with obesity and NAFLD and to determine the factors affecting the FC level.
