Background and Aims. In our detailed analysis of the recent academic publications, we have not found sufficient evidence regarding the changes of metabolism that occur in cases of insulin resistance (IR) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We aimed to investigate the changes in various biomarkers of obese patients by taking into consideration the IR and NAFLD, which occur increasingly together.
