Association between type two diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in youth

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In the last three decades prevalence of insulin related diseases has been growing worldwide with epidemic obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus and non alcoholic fatty liver disease. In children such epidemics are particularly worrisome, since metabolic abnormalities track to the adulthood with significant implications for the health care system. Epidemiological studies support a close association between type 2 diabetes and fatty liver disease. We review the most recent epidemiological data on prevalence of both diseases in youth and their association. .
