Abstract Background Polymorphisms have been identified to predispose to NAFLD. Here, we accessed the seven polymorphisms of rs1260326, rs780094 in GCKR, rs2954021 near TRIB1, rs2228603 in NCAN, rs58542926 in TM6SF2, rs12137855 near LYPLAL1, and rs10883437 near CPN1 on NAFLD susceptibility in the Uygur population. Material and methods We collected 620 samples (317 NAFLD and 303 controls) for this case-control study. Meta-analysis was performed using Stata Software. Results Our data detected that the rs1260326 (T vs. C: OR = 1.27, 95% CI = 1.01–1.59) and rs780094 (T vs. C: OR = 1.30, 95% CI = 1.04–1.63) were significantly associated with the susceptibility to NAFLD in Uygur population. The rs1260326 and rs780094 T/T genotype are significantly associated with soda, egg, and soybean intakes in the consumption group with twice or more in a week. Furthermore, a significant haplotype effect of rs1260326/T- rs780094/T was found (OR = 1.29, 95% CI: 1.03–1.62) compared with CC haplotype. An additional meta-analysis using 4352 cases and 10,168 controls established that rs780094 (OR = 1.21, 95%CI: 1.14–1.28) is significantly associated with NAFLD. Finally, among the 4 case-control studies on rs1260326, including 712 NAFLD and 658 controls, significant associations were found in Asian, liver biopsy, adult and pediatric groups. Conclusion Collectively, both our case-control study and meta-analysis confirm a significant association between rs780094 and NAFLD. Additionally, our results suggest Asian-specific, liver biopsy-specific, adult-specific and pediatric-specific associations between the rs1260326 and NAFLD. Moreover, the rs1260326 and rs780094 T/T genotype are significantly associated with food habits, such as soda, egg, and soybean.
