The connection between prediabetes, diabetes, and risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in HBsAg and anti-HCV seronegative patients, as well as the association between fasting glucose and HCC, was examined in this study. An initial 79,940 eligible residents participated in the present Keelung Community-Based Integrated Screening program, and were followed-up between 1999 and 2007.

Results showed that 114 individuals had developed HCC after 394,079 person-years follow-up. The adjusted hazard ratio was 1.59 for prediabetes, and 3.21 for diabetes, with males contributing to a majority of these associations. Prediabetes was also a significant predictor in those with lower total cholesterol, lower low-density-lipoprotein-cholesterol and never smokers. HCC risk was observed to increase rapidly at fasting glucose level of 85 mg/dL in males, showing a non-linear trend. Providing interventions as soon as the detection of prediabetes in males may therefore lessen the risk for HCC.
