Approach to HBeAg-Negative Patients with Increased Hepatic Aminotransferase Levels
This answer is incorrect. Although the prevalence of Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) has been estimated to exist in more than 15% of the general adult population in the United States, it most often involves obese individuals. In general, NAFLD should be considered in patients with otherwise unexplained elevations in liver enzymes. In this patient, however, who has a normal body mass index, normal fasting lipid profile, and a daily routine containing a moderate amount of aerobic exercise, NAFLD is unlikely.
