Abstract: Fatty liver is less common in people with BMI equal to or less than 25. Few studies have focused on the dimensions and risk factors of fatty liver. Therefore, further studies are needed in this field, especially in Iranian patients. The present study aimed to investigate the prevalence of risk factors in fatty liver patients with a BMI of <25 referring to the endocrine and gastrointestinal clinics of Labbafinejad Hospital (2017).In this observational cross-sectional study, 100 patients referring to the endocrine and gastrointestinal clinics of Labbafinejad Hospital (2017) with fatty liver and BMI less than 25 were selected. Moreover, different risk factors were determined and compared based on gender and abdominal obesity. Abdominal obesity was reported in 37.5% of men and 13.6% of women (P = 0.008). There was a significant difference between the genders. The factors affecting the prevalence of abdominal obesity were diabetes, pre-diabetes and high cholesterol, triglycerides, hypertension, hypothyroidism, corticosteroid, tamoxifen, alcohol and high waist circumference (P <0.05). According to the results, it is concluded that the risk factors of fatty liver in individuals with BMI equal to and less than 25 are similar to other individuals. Therefore, preventive guidelines in other patients with liver disease is also recommended in this group of patients.
