Lipid Toxicity and Related Liver Complications
Several University of Florida type 2 diabetes providers also carry appointments as research investigators. Clinicians from the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism are particularly interested in studying the links between Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Type 2 diabetes. The presence of NAFLD may play a pathogenic role, or at least be a hallmark of future T2DM, and it is likely that this condition carries an inherent health risk to many patients with this disease. UF clinicians hope to screen patients for NAFLD early enough to help prevent future T2DM onset and other complications.
