A Study of the Association between Diabetes Mellitus and Chronic Hepatitis B Virus Infection

The present study was designed to evaluate the relationship between HBV infection and type 2 diabetes mellitus first time from Pakistan and found that HBV infection did not enhance the risk of diabetes despite the significant differences in the biochemical parameters among the study's sample.


Background: Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection and diabetes mellitus are major health problems associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Published literature suggests an association of diabetes mellitus with liver diseases. However, the role of HBV infection in diabetes etiology is still controversial. The present study was performed to explore the veracity of this enigmatic association among Pakistani subjects.
