Introduction: The prevalence of metabolic syndrome is increasing in individuals with T1D, which could potentiate the development of NAFLD. The pathophysiology of NAFLD in T1D is still unclear, due to the co-existence of predisposing and protective factors. Insulin resistance (IR) is theorized as a key driver of NAFLD.Aim: We investigated the association between liver fat content (LFC), NAFLD, and IR in individuals with T1D. Subjects underwent magnetic re...

Background: Insulin resistance is proposed as a causative factor of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the general population. Reports on NAFLD in type 1 diabetes (T1D) are increasing , but whether insulin resistance is linked to NAFLD in this population needs elucidation. Furthermore, people with T1D are an excellent model to investigate insulin resistance in relation to NAFLD without confounding by autologous insulin production.Aims and Metho...
