Abstract

There is increasing interest in the role that diabetes has in liver-related outcomes in patients with chronic HCV. Elkrief and colleagues have furthered this discussion by indicating that diabetes may be considered a prognostic factor for major liver-related outcomes in patients with chronic HCV infection, including death and transplantation.
