Aims: Growing evidence suggests that not only type 2 diabetes (T2D) but also prediabetes (PD) is common in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, few data exist on how PD impacts the histological characteristics of NAFLD patients. In this exploratory study, we sought to investigate the associations of PD and T2D with the severity of the histological features in patients with NAFLD.
