BACKGROUND/AIMS To investigate the effect of sustained virological response (SVR) on impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and/or type 2 diabetes (T2DM); to assess the influence of glucose abnormalities on the SVR rate. METHODS 1059 patients with chronic HCV; normal glucose (< 100 mg/dl) in 734, IFG (between 100 and 125 mg/dl) in 218, and T2DM (126 mg/dl) in 107 cases, were treated with interferon plus ribavirin over 24 or 48 weeks, depending on viral genotype. RESULTS The SVR rate was lower in… CONTINUE READING
