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