FIB-4 Calculator for NAFLD
NB This is only valid for NAFLD and is intended for use in conjunction with the Camden and Islington Abnormal LFT pathway. Your local guidance may differ.
Please note The use of the FIB-4 score is not validated where a patient has normal transaminases or is over 75 years of age. Whilst the calculator will still give you a FIB-4 score, please make note of the error messages that may appear next to it.
This uses the FIB-4 formula: (age [yr]x AST [U/L]) / ((PLT [109/L]) x (√ALT [U/L]))
Calculator developed by Alex Warner.
