Objective: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is related to several inflammatory or metabolic diseases. However, findings of previous studies investigating the association between NAFLD and BMD are inconsistent. Only one study reported a potential association between NAFLD and osteoporotic fracture. This study investigated whether NAFLD in older participants (>55 years) was associated with osteoporotic fracture risk.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional, observational study included 2,695 participants (35.7% men, 614 cases of NAFLD, and 383 fractures). Standardized questionnaires, laboratory tests, and physical and ultrasonic examinations were completed.

Results: After adjusting for various factors including serum triglycerides (TG), high-density cholesterol (HDL-C), and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), multivariate logistic regression models revealed a marginal association between NAFLD and osteoporotic fracture risk in men (odds ratio [OR], 1.86; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.06–3.27; P = 0.030) but no association in women (OR, 1.05; 95% CI, 0.74–1.48; P = 0.800). Further stratified analyses showed a significant association between NAFLD and osteoporotic fracture risk in men without high TG, low HDL-C, and high LDL-C.

Conclusions: There was a significant association between NAFLD and osteoporotic fracture risk in older Chinese men, particularly men without dyslipidemia.
