Intact Fasting #Insulin Identifies Nonalcoholic Fatty #Liver Disease in Patients Without Diabetes

Patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are characterized by insulin resistance and hyperinsulinism. However, insulin resistance measurements have not been shown to be good diagnostic tools to predict NAFLD in prior studies. ObjectiveWe aimed to assess a newly validated method to measure intact molecules of insulin by mass spectrometry to predict NAFLD. MethodsPatients underwent …
