Background: Fatty liver disease can result in liver damage along with viral hepatitis and accelerated disease progression can result in liver tissue fibrosis and its destruction. 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 MethodsThis was randomized control trial that was performed on 24 obese children (7 to 11 age) with NAFLD that divided randomly into two groups (control and experimental). Aerobic exercise was carried out for eight weeks for experimental group.  Before and after the training period, measurements of liver enzyme levels (ALP, ALT, and AST) and Liver ultrasound was done. For analyze the data we used independent-samples T test.
Results: the results showed that perform an 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: So aerobic training is recommended as a non-drug treatment for fatty liver disease.
