Hi I recently had a fibroscan done the result was 5.1 Kpa and LFTs were normal. Is this in Normal range?

I did not get a consultation. The operating nurse said a score between 5 and 7 Kpa was normal. My question is I have read a lot of literature online that confuses me with regards to normal fibroscan scores ad was wondering if anyone could tell me if my reading is within the normal range. I am a 46 year old male who drank heavily in the past but only drinks occasionally now. Any help would be much appreciated as I am more confused about my result than ever and my GP seems in the dark also. Thanks in advance for any help.

That's a perfectly normal reading and one you needn't be worried about. GPs don't have a clue about Fibroscans at all, it's when you start going past around 7.5 there may be issues, as I understand it. L x


Thanks very much for your kind answer, it is much appreciated. I know what you mean my GP had never heard of a fibroscan!! Thanks again and take care. All the best!!
