Unfortunately it doesn’t elucidate the cause.

Assuming that the liver reaching maximum impairment first implies it is a cause, is like observing that obesity occurs before glucose control impairment implies that obesity causes diabetes - when the reality is they are both tube stops on the subway line of insulin resistance. But certainly the liver going over the cliff causes the slippery slope to slant downwards rapidly - as a liver that produces glucose at full speed is a terrifying “out of control” metabolic locomotive.
