Insulin resistance/beta-cell function and serum ferritin level in non-diabetic patients with hepatitis C virus infection.


BACKGROUND/AIMS Since impaired glucose tolerance and iron overload are frequently demonstrated in hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related liver diseases, in this study we investigated insulin resistance, pancreatic beta-cell function, i.e., insulin secretion, and serum ferritin levels in patients with HCV infection, especially non-diabetic patients.
