Background: Lifestyle modification is recognized as the first step of fatty liver treatment. This study aimed to determine the relationship between the awareness of non-alcoholic fatty liver and adolescents’ health-promoting lifestyle in senior high school students in west of Tehran, Iran.    
Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was performed on 338 high school students in 2020. The students were recruited by cluster sampling method. The data was collected by demographic information form, Awareness of non-alcoholic fatty liver questionnaire, and health-promoting lifestyle profile II (HPLPII) and were analyzed via frequency, mean, standard deviation, and inferential statistical tests of ANOVA, Chi square, independent t test, and Pearson correlation coefficient using SPSS V. 20.
Results: The results showed that the highest mean of health-promoting lifestyle was related to   spiritual growth and self-actualization dimension (27.41±5.53) and the lowest mean was related to the dimension of physical activity (19.71±6.63). There was a significant relationship between awareness of non-alcoholic fatty liver and the health responsibility subscale of HPLP (P=0.004). Awareness of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) had a direct relationship with father’s education (P= 0.004). The health-promoting lifestyle was positively related to students’ grade P<0.001), birth order (P=0.019), economic status (P< 0.001), number of children (P= 0.037), and living with parents (P=0.031), and negatively associated with the students’ age (P=0.014).
Conclusion: The significant relationship between knowledge about fatty liver and health responsibility indicates the need to increase students' awareness of this disease to improve a health-promoting lifestyle. Therefore, it is suggested that educational interventions be provided at different levels of prevention to empower students.
