Elevated LFT's: If you are having elevated liver function tests you need to determine the cause. Get a hepatitis profile and abdominal u/s done. Avoid fatty foods and alcohol. Have you had a sore throat or Mono recently? Stay on top of this as some of the conditions can be life threatening and or contagious.

See doctor: Your elevated SGPT/SGOT bear watching but at the level you describe, MANY things could cause an elevated level. They are sensitive markers of liver function/inflammation but not very specific. With the other symptoms you describe, it would appear there is some gastro-intestinal issue here. Continue to follow with your doctor and consider GI specialist eval if no improvement.worse next 2-3 wks.

A 18-year-old member asked:

What does bloody sputum mean?

Depends...: Blood could get mixed with sputum from a variety of locations. Dry nasal passages could crack and bleed into the pharynx getting mixed with secretions. Blood could come from the mouth, pharynx, trachea or esophagus if there was a lesion or infection. True bloody sputum coughed from the lungs should be evaluated as it could arise from infections or even cancer. Best to see your doctor.

See below: Sputum is the mucus that you cough up. A culture means that the specimen (in this case sputum) is plated on a plate with growth medium and incubated to test for any bacteria (or fungi). The purpose is to see if an infection is causing an illness. If bacteria grows, it is identified with various reagents and then tested for antibiotic susceptibility for treatment purposes.

A 20-year-old female asked:

I always have purulent sputum (sometimes green, sometimes yellow, sometimes brown) all winter long. Should i sheck up with doctors?

Yes: Absolutely. You should see a pulmonary specialist. If you have purulent sputum daily, at your age, your doctor needs to take a history and be prepared for other tests in case that doesn't lead to an answer. Probably allergies, but there could be asthma, cystic fibrosis and other much rarer problems behind this. If you smoke, step one is stop. Get help from your doctor with this.

Huff cough: Cough techniques can be very helpful. Look online for huff cough techniques. Also if you have any bronchodilator medication (albuterol) or can get humidified air (like in shower), this can be helpful.
