Fatty Liver Index (FLI) of Bedogni et al for Predicting Hepatic Steatosis


Fatty liver (FL) is the most frequent liver disease in Western countries [1, 2, 3, 4]. Obesity and its complications, especially type 2 diabetes and hypertriglyceridemia, are likely to be the main responsible of the current epidemic of FL

How to calculate Fatty Liver Index (FLI)....


FLI-An algorithm based on BMI, waist circumference, triglycerides and GGT had an accuracy of 0.84 (95%CI 0.81–0.87) in detecting FL. We used this algorithm to develop the "fatty liver index" (FLI), which varies between 0 and 100. A FLI < 30 (negative likelihood ratio = 0.2) rules out and a FLI ≥ 60 (positive likelihood ratio = 4.3) rules in fatty liver.

    These americans are utterly confused people. This index and that index. I don't find any significance in that. We have so many tests to know the severity of our D. So many postulations because they are fumbling in dark. Arey bhai D hai stop or reduce carbs. Simple. Diet diet and diet is the treatment. They must learn it and give up their ego. Should have a courage to accept the blunder and telling the world that for so many years they knowingly or unknowingly misguided the world and caused them ( the people of the world ) damage.
