Evaluation and Credit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MedChat19
This activity is targeted toward Primary care specialties.
Statement of Need
Abnormal liver biochemical and function tests are frequently detected in asymptomatic patients since many screening blood test panels routinely include them. A population-based survey in the United States conducted between 1999 and 2002 estimated that an abnormal alanine aminotransferase (ALT) was present in 8.9 percent of respondents. (2017 article indicated 10% of population have elevated transaminase levels). This podcast will educate providers on preferred approaches to the diagnosis and evaluation of those with abnormal liver tests.
