Diabetes is a serious disease but NAFLD/NASH/CIRRHOSIS is far more likely to kill you. 

The hazard ratio is a measure of how likely you are to die compared to someone without the disease. In this chart, look at Diabetes at 1.61 compared to stage 4 fibrosis (which is cirrhosis) which is 10.9.  Fibrosis is far more dangerous and there is no treatment.
