Nice | Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease NAFLD

This is a new guideline from NICE on non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in children, young people and adults.

To be honest, I don’t think this guideline is terribly helpful. I’ve done a brief summary, then more detailed notes. In summary:

Adults

There is no advice on who to test to diagnose NAFLD, nor what tests to use in diagnosis. Once diagnosed, there should be an assessment for ‘advanced liver fibrosis’. NICE advises using the ‘enhanced liver fibrosis test’ to do this. People scoring highly will need specialist referral. Others will need retesting regularly.

"The NASGP and the GP locum chambers that I'm in have provided invaluable assistance both before and through Covid-19 to me as a full-time GP locum. All aspects of locum work have been made easier as a result of membership and the chamber's support structure - from accessing work, to ensuring invoicing and documentation is all sorted, and access to other locums as peer support. Having a chamber manager means I feel more secure and can devote more of my energy on my clinical work."
