Background: Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) can affect various tissues and organs, have different clinical presentation and prognosis, depending on the primary tumour site, grading, differentiation and functional status. Reported prevalence of bone metastases (BM) from NETs has been increasing with improved imaging modalities, reaching >40% in some reports. The BM diagnosis is associated with reduced overall survival; however, this was not confirmed by all studies.<p clas...

Background and aims: Non-alcohol fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is increasingly recognised in diabetic patients with metabolic syndrome. Patients with poorly-controlled diabetes and metabolic syndrome are likely to have significant liver inflammation leading to fibrosis. NAFLD fibrosis score (NFS) is a validated non-invasive scoring system that identifies liver fibrosis in patients with NAFLD. The aim of this study is to examine the glycaemic control in patients with or without s...
