MASH Forum Case: Referral to Specialists

Can you answer the questions about these 2 cases written by Dr Balakrishnan? Join Dr Balakrishnan’s session, who will be chairing a discussion on this case in our MASH Academy

Case 1: Mrs J

Mrs. J is a 40-year-old woman presenting with a 10-year history of abnormal liver enzymes, including elevated ALT (90 U/L), AST (60 U/L), and alkaline phosphatase (130 U/L), along with a slightly low platelet count. She has a body mass index (BMI) of 30, indicating obesity, and has been diagnosed with prediabetes. Notably, Mrs. J reports no alcohol consumption.

Despite these persistent abnormalities, Mrs. J remains asymptomatic and has not been previously evaluated for liver disease. Her primary care physician is now concerned about the potential for underlying liver pathology.

Case 2: Mr D

Mr. D is a 55-year-old man with a long-standing history of type 2 diabetes and hypertension. He presents for a routine check-up with his primary care physician. His liver enzymes have always been within the normal range (ALT 29 U/L, AST 25 U/L) and his platelet count is 190,000/µL. However, his alkaline phosphatase is slightly elevated at 130 U/L. He has a body mass index (BMI) of 30, indicating obesity. Mr. D denies any alcohol consumption.

Despite normal liver enzymes and no symptoms of liver disease, Mr. D's physician is concerned about the elevated alkaline phosphatase and his risk factors.

MASH Forum Case: Management

Can you answer the questions about this case ahead of joining Prof Dinani's session?

Ms. M is a 38-year-old female presenting with Class 2 obesity (BMI 34 kg/m²) and prediabetes, diagnosed with metabolic-associated steatohepatitis (MASH). She is eager to improve her liver health but prefers to avoid medication, believing lifestyle changes alone can achieve this goal.

Her dietary habits primarily consist of meals eaten outside the home, including a quick breakfast on her way to work. She consumes a diet ginger ale with lunch and attempts to have dinner at home around 6 pm. However, she experiences nighttime hunger, often snacking on cookies or chips, with occasional fruit intake. Ms. M has an unused gym membership and expresses interest in starting a walking routine. She reports no joint issues or arthritis.

MASH Forum Case: Diagnosis

Can you answer the questions about this case ahead of joining Prof Sanyal's session?

Mrs. A.B., a 55-year-old woman of South Asian descent, presents for a routine check-up. She denies any current complaints and reports feeling well overall. Her past medical history is significant for well-controlled type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) managed with metformin, and hypertension managed with lisinopril. She leads a sedentary lifestyle and admits to a diet high in processed foods and sugary drinks. Her family history is positive for cardiovascular disease.

On examination, Mrs. A.B. is overweight with a BMI of 28 kg/m². Vital signs are normal. A routine blood panel reveals mildly elevated liver enzymes (ALT and AST) with normal bilirubin levels.
