Chronic kidney disease and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease linked in type 2 diabetes

Elevated triglycerides are one of the common risk factors contributing to both chronic kidney disease (CKD) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, according to this report. This cross-sectional study evaluated common and unique risk factors for CKD and NAFLD in 1,992 subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The common risk factors associated with both CKD and NAFLD were age, triglycerides, and uric acid; unique risk factors were albumin and HbA1c for CKD, and body mass index, white blood cell count, serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase level (aka alanine aminotransferase ) and smoking for NAFLD. The analysis also confirmed a causal relationship between NAFLD and CKD in this patient group.
