You did not post any fibrosure test results to interpret.

The doctor who ran the test test should consult with you the results of this and discuss all treatment options and if theyt have not possibly looking to see another doctor would be in your best interests.

Good luck..
Will.

The Fibrosure blood test comes with two scoring levels. The Fibrosis scoring with anything >.74 results indicates Cirrhosis. A scoring of anything .62 indicates Severe activity with anything below <.17 indicates no activity.
-----------------

The scoring level is the main concern as for whether it indicates Cirrhosis or not. Keep in mind this is just a blood test and not as accurate as having a Biopsy but is a pretty good indicator of either no Fibrosis or severe Fibrosis.... Good luck

Just so I didn't confuse you A fibrosis score of >.74 equals Cirrhosis or stage 4 and anything under .62 equals severe activity or grade 3 and anything <.17 equal no Activity or grade 0.
-------------------------------------

As I stated above what really is of concern is your Fibrosis score and not so much of your "activity" scoring.

Not sure why it is not typing it all out. but here it is.

Fibrosis Scoring:

           0.74 = Stage F4 – Cirrhosis

Macroinflamm Activity Scoring:

              0.62 = Grade A3 – Severe activity
