Type 1 diabetes patients showed a lower prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and cirrhosis but more diagnoses of glycogenosis than those with type 2 diabetes, a British study indicated. However, researchers found the prevalence of cirrhosis during follow-up was 301.5 per 100,000 in type 1 diabetes patients, compared with only 76.3 per 100,000 in the general population. The results were presented at The Liver Meeting.
