Abstract

Background : Fatty liver disease can result in liver damage along with viral hepatitis, and accelerated disease progression can result in liver tissue fibrosis and liver damage. Aerobic training can reduce the level of liver enzymes (Alp, ALT, and AST) in order for possible treatment of fatty liver disease with aerobic exercise. The present study was performed to assess the effects of Aerobic training on NAFLD. Materials and Methods: The present study was a randomized control trial that was performed on 24 obese children (7 to 11 age) with NAFLD, that were divided randomly into two groups (control and experimental). Aerobic exercise was carried out for eight weeks for the experimental group. Before and after the training period, measurements of liver enzyme levels (ALP, ALT, and AST) and liver ultrasound was done. To analyze the data, independent-samples T testing was used. Results: The results showed that performing aerobic training reduced the levels of liver enzymes ALT (p=0.007), AST (p=0.024), and ALP (p=0.048) in the experimental group significantly. Conclusion: Aerobic training is recommended as a non-drug treatment for fatty liver disease. Keywords: Aerobic training, Non-alcoholic fatty liver, AST and ALT enzymes, Obese children.
