This is serious: I trust the dye test was a pulmonary angiogram that demonstrated a pulmonary thromboembolus, and it has also been determined that you have hypercoagulable blood. This is a major problem that will require work with your primary care physician and probably long-term medical management -- more than healthtap can do. Hope you do not smoke. The "inflammation" & liver labs need to be addressed in time. ...Read more

Liver disease, other: My best interpretation of your question is that your blood tests show abnormally high levels of enzymes that are mostly associated with the liver. This suggests damage to liver cells with leakage of these enzymes to the blood. This may be hepatitis, a toxic problem, or even potentially a tumor. Some of these enzymes may come from other cells, so depending on which it might be muscle disease. ...Read more
