Table 3 Adjusted odds ratios for NAFLD in four TyG quartiles by ALT quartiles

From: The triglyceride and glucose index (TyG) is an effective biomarker to identify nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

   TyG
  Q1 (OR, 95% CI) Q2 (OR, 95% CI) Q3 (OR, 95% CI) Q4 (OR, 95% CI)
ALT Q1 (OR, 95% CI) 1 1.4 (1.0–2.0) 2.2 (1.5–3.2) 5.0 (3.4–7.2)
Q2 (OR, 95% CI) 1.2 (0.8–1.8) 2.3 (1.6–3.3) 3.5 (2.5–4.9) 7.4 (5.2–10.7)
Q3 (OR, 95% CI) 1.5 (1.0–2.2) 2.9 (2.1–4.0) 4.6 (3.3–6.4) 8.9 (6.3–12.4)
Q4 (OR, 95% CI) 2.2 (1.5–3.4) 4.1 (2.9–5.9) 7.9 (5.6–11.1) 17.3 (12.2–24.4)
  1. Adjusted variables included age, sex, body mass index, systolic blood pressure, uric acid and white blood cell counts
  2. NAFLD: nonalcoholic fatty liver disease; AL: alanine aminotransferase; Q1: first quartile; Q2: second quartile; Q3: third quartile; Q4: fourth quartile
