Hepatogenous diabetes (HD) is a glycogen metabolism disorder that arises as a consequence of chronic liver disease. The condition is frequently detected in patients diagnosed with cirrhosis, which is a result of advanced liver disease. The prognosis for patients with HD is generally poor, and they are at a heightened risk for serious complications such as gastrointestinal bleeding, primary peritonitis, and hepatic encephalopathy. Hepatogenous diabetes progression is often associated with cirrhosis progression, which leads to the development of liver cancer and increased patient mortality. Despite the prevalence and severity of HD, no systematic treatment strategy for clinical management of the condition has been proposed by any research or institutions to date. This paper conducts an extensive review of recent advancements in HD treatment in the quest for an effective treatment approach that may improve the overall prognosis of HD.
