Research Early forms of liver disease affect  heart health

US: Researchers from the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai have found that even early forms of liver disease affect heart health. 

Patients with (versus without) baseline nonalcoholic fatty liver disease had a significantly higher risk of new‐onset heart failure (HF).

It has been known for many years that the heart and the liver are intimately related.

Patients with acute and chronic heart failure develop manifestations from the liver.
