Abstract

We demonstrate in 351 diabetic patients with steatosis that NAFLD fibrosis score (NFS), a rapid and affordable score to diagnose hepatic fibrosis, identifies patients at higher risk of advanced fibrosis and vascular diabetic complications (especially peripheral neuropathy), pointing NFS as a first-line vascular and hepatic screening in diabetic patients.
