Poster Abstract
Background: Association of Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is common.
 
Materials and Methods: Our study population included 100 patients of T2DM. Presence of fatty liver in these patients was determined by abdominal sonography. Insulin Resistance was assessed by Homeostasis Model Assistant - Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR).
 
Results: The study group (n = 100) was divided into a NAFLD group (n = 55) and a non-NAFLD group (n = 45). The prevalence of NAFLD in our study was 55%. The prevalence of obesity, central obesity was higher in NAFLD group with increased values of HbA1c and triglyceride levels. Insulin Resistance was significantly higher in NAFLD group.

Conclusion: Presence of NAFLD among T2DM patients is significantly associated with Insulin resistance.
