AbstractNon-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus are two common health problems worldwide. Globally, it has been estimated that a quarter of the adult population in the world currently suffers from NAFLD.1 In Asia, probably attributed to the obesity epidemic, the prevalence of NAFLD was similar, or even slightly higher, when compared to that in the Western population (27% in Asia vs. 24.1% in North America and 23.7% in Europe), and the incidence was around 52 per 1,000 person-years.1 Similarly, there are more than 380 million people with diabetes worldwide, and the International Diabetes Federation estimates that this will rise to almost 592 million within a generation.
