Thyroid hormone levels linked to liver fibrosis in type 2 di
The retrospective analysis included 586 participants, of whom 55.1% were women. Researchers divided participants into groups with (n = 346) and without (n = 240) NAFLD. A NAFLD fibrosis score of > 0.676 served as the definition for progressive liver fibrosis, which researchers used to categorize participants into two groups: those with (n = 93) and without (n = 493) progressive liver fibrosis. There is a close correlation between the abnormal thyroid hormone levels and liver fibrosis in type 2 diabetes patients, ie, the prevalence of NAFLD increased following the increase of free T3, free T3/free T4 ratio and decrease of free T4.
