Abstract
OBJECTIVE Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is an important risk factor for the progression of metabolic liver disease to advanced fibrosis. Here, we provide an estimate of the prevalence of steatosis and fibrosis in U.S. adults with T2DM on the basis of transient elastography (TE) and identify factors associated with these conditions. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This is a cross-sectional study of U.S. adults with T2DM participating in the...
