DIABETES and NON-ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER DISEASE
Type 2 Diabetes and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) often go hand in hand. This is no coincidence because the same characteristic—obesity—puts individuals at high risk for both. As obesity becomes more prevalent, this combination of diseases will plague more and more people, with the potential for serious consequences.
DIABETES affects more than 285 million people worldwide. The disease is forecast to reach 485 million cases by the year 2030, according to the International Diabetes Federation.
