Data from an observational study done in the United States have shown the following relationships [Reja 2020]:
Higher serum selenium status is correlated with lower risk of advanced liver fibrosis.
This correlation is especially strong in liver disease patients who are elderly, who are non-Hispanic white, or who are female.
The patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) who had higher serum selenium levels also had a 28% lower hazard ratio of death from all causes compared to the NAFLD patients with the lowest serum selenium levels.
