Aims: The prevalence of cholelithiasis is 2 to 3 times higher in patients with diabetes mellitus than in the normal population, especially in a group of patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). We investigated the pathogenesis of this increased prevalence by ultrasonography with a brief comparison of demographic features.
