Aim: The present study was conducted to assess liver involvement in subjects with type 2
diabetes mellitus and to find the correlation between different cardiovascular parameters and
non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in these subjects.
Methods: The present prospective clinical study included 75 subjects showing fatty liver
changes on ultrasound and type 2 diabetes mellitus where correlation with cardiovascular
changes was assessed.
Results: Highest prevalence of LVDD in subjects with HbA1c of 7.1-8, hypertension is
significantly higher in subjects with fatty liver compared to subjects without fatty liver and
based on diabetes duration, LVDD, and ischemic changes on ECG is seen in majority
subjects of diabetes with 5-10 years. Hypertension grade 0 was seen in 13.33% (n=10) study
subjects, Grade 1 hypertension in 45.33% (n=34) study subjects, and Grade 2 hypertension in
20% (n=15) study subjects, in total of 78.66% (n=59) study subjects. In subjects with nonfatty
liver, Grade 0, 1, 2, and 3 hypertension was seen in 10.66% (n=8), 10.66% (n=8), and 0
study subjects respectively, and in total of 21.33% (n=16) study subjects. This difference was
statistically significant with p
