BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a major risk factor for the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and subsequently hepatic fibrosis. Transient elastography (TE) is a rapid, reproducible non-invasive test that may be appropriate as a screening tool for the presence of hepatic fibrosis. AIM Assess the utility of TE as a screening tool for the presence of hepatic fibrosis in a T2DM population with no known liver disease. METHODS T2DM patients without known… CONTINUE READING
