WORKSHOP 7:          Abnormal Liver Function Tests – Dr Guy Pilkington, GP

It seems increasingly common that patients, with little in the way of symptoms,
are found to have abnormal LFTs. This creates all sorts of questions:
 What do they mean?
 Is the patient ill?
 How should we assess further?
 Should we refer?
Because of the ‘obesity epidemic’ and Non-Alcohol Fatty Liver Disease
(NAFLD) this is a problem we will all need to get used to.

Dr Pilkington will present findings from a local audit and link them to
guidelines developed in conjunction with Newcastle hepatologists.
