"These findings support previous data that there may be an association with non-cirrhotic HCC and an elevated BMI as well as diabetes independent of steatosis," said Dr. Mitlyng.

The study, found that at baseline, approximately 50 percent of the 760 participants were overweight (BMI 25‐29 kg/m2) and 25 percent were obese (BMI = 30 kg/m2). The mean age of participants was 59.7 years and 66 percent were males. The mean total duration of follow-up was 8.4 years (range 4.9 ‐12.4 years).

"When compared with participants with normal BMI, overweight and obese participants have an elevated risk of adenoma recurrence during both short and term and long-term," said Dr. Laiyemo. "Since BMI was positively associated with adenoma recurrence in short and long-term, lifestyle modification should be encouraged."
