In Jan this year I had a mildly elevated ALT of 80. As my mother had AIH they tested me for that. I am still waiting for that part of the test to come back 4 months after the bloods were taken although the LFT's showed that my ALT had reduced to 50 which I guess is good news. Everything else looked OKI
As part of the initial consultation they booked me in for a Fibroscan. I hadn't really thought much about it but mow I am terrified.
The consultant I saw at Kings in London was really negative and said that the ultrasound are only 90% accurate for detecting cirrhosis and that 10% of people with fatty liver also have Cirrhosis.
I am now really scared that I may have Fibrosis or even worse Cirrhosis. Do they give you the results there and then even if its really bad news?
