Researchers link risk of gestational diabetes and glucose intolerances to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

A Canadian study in The American Journal of Gastroenterology showed that women with ultrasound evidence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) during their early pregnancy were more likely to develop gestational diabetes and dysglycemia in the second trimester of their pregnancy than those without NAFLD. The findings were based on 476 healthy women who underwent ultrasound between the 11th and 14th week of their pregnancy.
