Guidelines for the Management of Adults with Asymptomatic Liver Blood Test Abnormalities
This guideline relates to adults with only vague or no symptoms or signs of liver disease, found to have abnormal liver blood tests. This guideline does not apply to children.
It is recognised that abnormal liver blood tests are an increasingly common presentation in primary care, in part due to the growing number of individuals with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
This guideline makes recommendations for the diagnosis and management of adults with abnormal liver function tests with little or no symptoms, and is intended for use by all clinicians in the North East and North Cumbria in the diagnosis and management of these patients.
