#Diabetes affects more than 500 million people around the world. Almost half of them do not know they have it. Ignoring this, will put them at an increased risk of complications such as liver disease.
Type 2 diabetes is a risk factor for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (#NAFLD). This is the most common chronic liver disease in the world. If not diagnosed early, it can lead to irreversible damage such as cirrhosis or liver cancer.
Today, on World Diabetes Day, it is important to create awareness about NAFLD to help patients to understand more about the complications and to support them to make appropriate lifestyle changes.
