For what reason serum cu and ceruloplasmin levels are paradoxically low in wilson's disease?

For what reason serum cu and ceruloplasmin levels are paradoxically low in wilson's disease?

Not paradoxical: The problem is that copper can't get out of certain cells. The reason for ceruloplasmin being low is under study; since it carries copper, this metal also tends to be low. Checking serum copper and serum ceruloplasmin as a screen for wilson's misses up to a quarter of cases, especially if the person is already sick with anything. ...Read more

Husband has liver disease. AST, ALT blood work is normal. since these tests check for liver disease is it odd that the blood work is normal?

There may be scarring (cirrhosis, even) but if he's sobered up, the enzymes will be normal anyway. Anybody can raise their enzymes by being drunk for a few days without actual liver disease worth diagnosis. Glad he's better; hope he thanks you. ...Read more

Can you list the pathological conditions responsible for high levels of serum amylase?

Can you list the pathological conditions responsible for high levels of serum amylase?

Sure: Are the mechanisms okay? If you feel well, usually your amylase is just tagged with an immunoglobulin that slows its clearance. If your kidneys aren't working well, you don't lose it fast enough. If your pancreas is even a little bit hurt, or your salivary glands, you get some in your bloodstream. Even morphine can make this happen. How do you FEEL? ...Read more

What are possible reasons for normal cortisol levels in the blood but high levels in the urine?

What are possible reasons for normal cortisol levels in the blood but high levels in the urine?

Need More tests: A single blood sample may not accurately reflect cortisol levels as peak values may have occurred at a different point during the daily cycle, producing a normal blood sample when cortisol levels are actually elevated. The elevation would be detected, however, by 24-hour urine cortisol levels. High urine cortisol can be caused by cushing's, lung cancer, adrenal tumors. ...Read more
