A recent study done in Kangbuk Samsung Hospital in South Korea, found that people who were diagnosed with fatty liver, have also an increased chance to for Type 2 Diabetes.
This is quite a significant find, because until now it was believed that a Fatty Liver could be a side effect of other diseases, but this research clearly shows that a fatty liver can actually endorse serious conditions, like Diabetes.
Why Fatty Liver and Diabetes are related?
The main reason that fatty liver can promote diabetes development is because fatty liver has many properties that are shared with Diabetes, like excess weight, metabolic abnormalities, and high glucose & triglyceride levels in the blood.
The research has found that 27% of the people with diabetes also have a Fatty Liver, and concluded that fatty liver is the most common disease shared with diabetes.
This doesn’t mean that a fatty liver is a direct cause of diabetes, but it does suggest that a fatty liver could be an important sign of diabetes development.
What does this mean about me?
This is one more reason to cure a fatty liver as soon as you’re diagnosed, or even better prevent fatty liver development at the first place. Diabetes is just one example of serious diseases that has relation to fatty liver. We are still unaware of the full list of potential conditions and diseases that are somehow related to a fatty liver.
In addition, if you do have Diabetes, I highly recommend getting The Diabetes Reversing guide by Matt Traverso. It helped many of my own patients.
