Chronic Liver Disease Calculator
This calculator computes the SSA Chronic Liver Disease (SSA CLD) scores we use to evaluate CLD under listing 5.05G (see DI 34001.018) for adults and under listing 105.05G1 (see DI 34005.015) for children age 12 or older.
Name SSA CLD Formula
SSN 9.57 x [Loge (creatinine mg/dL) + 3.78 x [Loge (bilirubin mg/dL)] + 11.20 x [Loge (INR)] + 6.43 = SSA CLD score (rounded to one decimal place)

Enter all lab values above to see if CLD scores are 11 or greater.
Enter all dates above to validate timing.
CLD Scores    
 
Date Range Criteria:
All dates need to show that those of the 1st score are before those of the 2nd score.
All dates of 1st set needed to show they are within 30 days of each other.
All dates of 2nd set needed to show they are within 30 days of each other.
All dates needed to show that those of 2nd score are over 60 days after 1st score.
All dates needed to show that they are within 6 months of each other.

The above calculator has been adapted from the MELD formula documented on the UNOS Website.
