Abstract

BACKGROUND: Obesity and insulin resistance are diseases that are associated with each other where vitamin D deficiency is prevalently seen. It is also considered that vitamin D deficiency is associated with liver diseases. This study was conducted to determine whether or not there is a relationship between the ALT/AST ratio and serum vitamin D levels.
