From: Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with metabolic syndrome, with or without nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

  Total N = 300 Control N = 100 Metabolic with NAFLD N = 100 Metabolic without NAFLD N = 100 Test of significance Within group significance

  1. *statistically significant value
  2. Note that more than half of controls were HP positive that is due to the high prevalence of HP infection in our region. Nevertheless, they had no complain or any history of GIT symptoms
  3. χ2 Chi-square test, p1 difference between control and metabolic with NAFLD group, p2 difference between control and metabolic without NAFLD group, p3 difference between metabolic with and without NAFLD
