People who live in mountainous areas have a greater risk of developing liver enzymes that can cause heart failure, according to a new study.
The study published in the American Journal of Medicine found that the higher the elevation of a person’s liver, the greater their risk.
The study of more than 6,000 adults and 6,500 children found that those who lived in mountainous regions had an elevated level of liver enzymes (ALT) that increased the risk of heart failure.
A higher altitude also increased the incidence of ALT, which is linked to heart failure and strokes.
Altitude also increases the risk for a number of other problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity, according a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
According to the CDC, ALT levels are measured by a urine test.
