Lower hand grip strength in older adults with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a nationwide population-based study

Figure 3. Hand grip strength, categorized according to hepatic steatosis index quartile. (A) Men and (B) women. Values are presented as the estimated mean and 95% confidence interval, after adjustment for confounding factors. Delta (Δ) indicates a difference in hand grip strength from the lowest quartile (Q1). *Statistically significant difference from Q1. Base model: adjustment for age and weight. Multivariable model: adjustment for age, weight, systolic blood pressure, smoking habit, resistance exercise, total cholesterol, triglycerides, glycated hemoglobin A1c, and alanine aminotransferase. NAFLD, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
