BACKGROUND Changes in gut bacteria play a role in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and hepatic steatosis. There is a lack of studies evaluating the frequency and risk factors for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in patients tested for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). AIM To evaluate the frequency of NAFLD and associated risk factors in patients tested for SIBO. METHODS In this case-control study, 372 eligible patients submitted to glucose hydrogen/methane breath test for… Expand
