A study conducted by Dr. Fukuda and colleagues, evaluated NAFLD as a risk marker for type 2 diabetes.1 The researchers evaluated data of >4500 patients who were part of a health checkup program over a 12-year period. In non-obese patients, NAFLD pushed the rate of diabetes from 3.2% to 14.4%, which is almost four times the rate of diabetes compared with that in people without NAFLD. For obese patients, NAFLD moved the rate of diabetes from 8% to 26.4%, which is a little over three times the rate of diabetes compared with that in people without NAFLD. The conclusion drawn by the researchers is that NAFLD is independent of BMI for prediction of diabetes.
