Relationship Between Type 2 DM And Liver Cirrhosis.?
I want to ask if can people with type 2 DM get liver cirrhosis?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Hepatic cirrhosis is a condition where the liver has extensive fibrosis (meaning healthy liver cells have been replaced by scar tissue / scar tissue) and are permanently damaged. Hepatic cirrhosis can occur due to many possibilities, including:
Chronic excessive alcohol consumption
chronic hepatitis infections (hepatitis B, C and D)
disorders of the biliary tract
certain metabolic disorders
and many other possibilities
When inflammation occurs in liver cells and liver cells are damaged, liver cells will repair themselves and at the same time will form scar tissue or scar tissue. The bigger and longer the inflammation that occurs in the liver cells, the more scar tissue that is formed will be more. Cirrhosis occurs when scarring has replaced most of the healthy cells in the liver and there is impaired liver function.
Diabetics (including type 2 diabetes) may develop liver cirrhosis due to various causes mentioned above (for example diabetics may have hepatitis B infection or hepatitis that becomes chronic and progresses to liver cirrhosis). However, the risk of fatty liver is higher in diabetics, so the possibility of cirrhosis due to fatty liver can indeed be increased in diabetics.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
