There have been several reports about clinical association between type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, most of studies were about the unilateral effects of type 2 DM on NAFLD, and studies for the reverse relation were rare. Thus, this study was designed to investigate the effect of NAFLD on the type 2 DM. We conducted a prospective cohort study on the 25,232 Korean men without type 2 DM for 5 years. We serially checked the various metabolic factors including fasting glucose and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), and monitored the development of type 2 DM. Incidence rate of type 2 DM was compared according to the degree of NAFLD (normal, mild, and moderate to severe), and Cox proportional hazards model was used to measure the hazard ratios (HRs) of NAFLD on type 2 DM. The incidence rate of type 2 DM increased according to the degree of NAFLD (normal: 7.0%, mild: 9.8%, moderate to severe: 17.8 %, P < 0.001). Even after adjusting for other multiple covariates, the HRs (95% CI) for type 2 DM development was higher in mild group (1.09; 0.81-1.48) and moderate to severe group (1.73; 1.00-3.01) compared to normal group, respectively (P for trend <0.001). In conclusion, the development of type 2 DM is more potentially associated with more progressive NAFLD than normal or milder state. In addition, NAFLD was an independent risk factor of future development of type 2 DM. These results suggest the potential availability of NAFLD as an early predictor of type 2 DM. (HEPATOLOGY 2012.).
