Interpretive Data

Test Includes: Quantitation of 10 biochemicals - 2-macroglobulin; alanine aminotransferase (ALT); apolipoprotein A1; aspartate aminotransferase (AST); bilirubin, total; cholesterol, total; -glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT); glucose; haptoglobin; triglycerides.

Limitations: NASH FibroSURE is recommended for patients with suspected non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It is not recommended for patient with other liver diseases. It is also not recommended in patients with Gilbert disease, acute hemolysis, acute viral hepatitis, drug induced hepatitis, genetic liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis and/or extra-hepatic cholestasis. Any of these clinical situations may lead to inaccurate quantitative predictions of fibrosis.
