The liver – the other serious diabetes complication

Is the liver at risk for those with diabetes. Yes! In a Canadian population based study, the liver is at fifty percent greater risk in people with diabetes. Normally diabetes guidelines do not recommend screening for liver disease and is often overlooked in diabetes. Please read about the study here.

It may be necessary to do annual screening of the liver to determine the health of the liver in people with diabetes and it may be necessary to add the liver to the list of target-organ conditions.
