I had a fibroscan done last week and based on that and the 10 tubes of blood drawn that day the doctor advised to get a liver biopsy.
I’m hoping to get some advise on whether a biopsy is necessary.
I was referred to a liver doctor based on an MRI that showed possible fatty liver. Upon my visit to the liver doctor he had me get a fibroscan and blood work done that same day. Fibroscan result was a 7.6kpa median and 167 cap median. Blood result he said showed elevated enzymes. He also said not fatty liver but something about scarring. I’m not sure what any of these results/numbers mean but I’m a little concerned getting a liver biopsy and if it’s necessary.
Im including some added info if that helps. I’m 30 yrs old male. I’ve my gallbladder removed about 8 years ago. I also don’t have a weight issue. Weight has ranged between 130-150 lbs past 10 years. I also rarely drink alcohol. I took my first drink about 3 years ago. I don’t drink any beer or wine at all.
I would greatly appreciate any advise and help figuring this results out.
