Purpose: To investigate on impact in hepatic triglycerides levels as a result of various structured exercise interventions prescribed as a treatment for NAFLD patients. Relevance: Exercise prescription in Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease patients gains the topmost importance, provided already there is existing absence of effectiveness of pharmacotherapy drugs in treatment of NAFLD. Exercising daily can improve the exercise capacity of the individual and can reduce the progression of NAFLD disease into Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and cirrhosis. Participants: Since it is a scoping review, there are no participants (NOT APPLICABLE)Methods: A scoping review was conducted using PubMed, Hepatology journals, Google scholar database during the time period of (2013–2020) and 26 literature evidences related to the topic were found and further analyzed. Analysis: Statistical Analysis Not ApplicableResults: A total of 26 Randomized control trial articles were included in the review,which studied on effectiveness and impact of exercise interventions on liver enzymes.we could found 12 articles focusing on aerobic protocols and 6 articles focusing on resistance exercises and 8 literature evidences focusing on both aerobic and resistance protocols. Conclusion: Taking into consideration the available evidence till date, we conclude that,exercise protocols consisting of aerobic and resistance were equally effective on hepatic triglycerides levels,but more improvement was found in patients on Liver enzymes in combined aerobic and resistance protocols. Also Exercise interventions in NAFLD patients aren’t sufficient and feasibility of the available protocols is poor and thus there exists lacunae for protocols for common population are yet to be addressed. Implications: Understanding the available various exercise protocols and its effectiveness devised for NAFLD patients will help in future progression of exercise protocols and can lead to advancement in protocols and also it will benefit the patients
