Non alcoholic fatty liver disease mainly affects patients with metabolic syndrome, obesity and type 2 diabetes. CKD and NAFLD share the common risk factors and pathogenic mechanism which shows increased relationship between CKD and NAFLD. Conclusion: Chronic kidney disease affects 4-13% of world?s population. CKD leads to renal failure which will require kidney transplant and NAFLD which in turn leads to cirrhosis which requires liver transplant as the treatment of choice. Hence, this research will be useful for it can be used for treatment strategies, prevent morbidity and mortality.
