Diabetics more likely to die from liver disease

31st March 2011

University of Edinburgh research has suggested that people with diabetes are 70% more likely to die from liver disease than those without the condition.

It is already known that diabetes can increase the risk of some types of liver disease. But the study analysed the records of people aged 35 to 84 over a six-year period to 2007, comparing 1,267 diabetes sufferers to 10,100 people without the condition, who all died of liver disease and found that 24% of people with diabetes died of liver cancer, compared to 9% of non-diabetics.
