Grade 4 / Stage 1 ?

Ok - the nurse called today w/ bx results - grade 4 / stage 1 - this is a good thing? Right?
I'll get my blood test results April 16.

All of the information I've read about this for the past two months went right out of my head after I got the results - so I thought I better ask you guys - thanks

yes it is a good thing as far as the minimal liver damage (stage 1) at this time but the grade 4 means that you have the worse inflamation (inflammation) going on (scale is from stage 1-4, with stage 4 being the worse) and this means your liver is being hit hard. i would consider treating ASAP or at least take supplements to get the inflamation (inflammation) down. best of luck

Are there different grading scales for inflammation?
