In brief: Usually not!

It is a n unusual complication primarily of high dose prednisione.
People with risk factors for fatty liver, ie. Metabolic syndrome, are more prone to this, since steroids are diabetogenic and cause Insulin resistance. But few patientws not in this category get increased lfts!
