Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is dramatically increasing in parallel with the pandemic of type 2 diabetes. Here, the authors aimed to assess the performance of the most commonly used noninvasive, blood-based biomarkers for liver fibrosis (FibroTest, NAFLD fibrosis score, BARD score, and FIB-4 Index) in subjects with type 2 diabetes. Liver stiffness measurement was estimated by two-dimensional shear wave elastography. Finally, the authors assessed the diagnostic role of ActiTest and NashTest 2 in liver fibrosis in the examined population.
