Copies of Lab reports in Health Files. ALT 65, ALP215. AST38, Bilirubin .5, Hep B & C negative. Doc says u r alright.I m not satisfied with him.
Repeat it: Alk phos fluctuates and some young men run high especially if it's non-fasting. Your transaminases ALT/AST are a tiny bit high and usually the first step is to repeat the labs off alcohol. Silymarin / milk thistle is worthless in this situation and you should get a screen for Wilson's (urine copper), autoimmunity (ANA etc) and hemochromatosis. Consider getting into physical fitness seriously again ...Read more
My husband ate mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits , fried chicken.Then ate 2 Special K bars. Blood glucose after 3 hours 170. Is that normal?
My blood sugar is @ 244 when i only had 1 med banana 2 c unsweetened green tea 2 c black coffee 1 med avocado 1 medium apple 12 corn tortilla chips?
Diabetes?: Sugar levels are established by complex interplay between many variables. Hard to predict bg level at a random time after eating. If you measure bg levels after eating it is best to check at 2 hours after your meal. At that time bg level should be less than 140. Since I do not see diabetes on the conditions list...A fasting blood sugar >126 on two separate occasions deines diabetes. ...Read more

Typhoid: A single widal test in an unvaccinated patient showing h and/or o titres greater than or equal to 1:160 and typhoid-like symptoms is strongly suggestive of typhoid fever. It also appears that h titre is more useful than o titre. More false positives are found than false negatives. Under these circumstances, the clinical picture is the decisive factor in making a diagnosis of typhoid. ...Read more
High liver emzymes ALT 64 &. Ast 63 . I have been taking virgin coconut oil 3 table spoon per day and apple cider vinegar.. Never had high emzymes .
Many causes: Elevated liver enzymes can have many causes- acute or chronic viruses, side effects of drugs, alcohol, environmental toxins and (most commonly) nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. I know of no evidence that coconut oil or apple cider vinegar raises liver enzymes, though 3 tbsp a day of coconut oil is a lot. See you doc to evaluate. See http://www.Aafp.Org/afp/2011/1101/p1003.Html and comment:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Non diabetic ate 1/2 scooped out bagel with cream cheese and cafe con leche with sugar worked 2 hrs after ate sugar 127 ?
That is normal: 2 hour after eating blood sugar is normal when it is below 140, borderline 140-180 and possibly diabetic over 180. Fasting blood sugar is normal if less that 100, borderline 100-125, and diabetic over 125. Takes 2 or more high readings or one over 200 to diagnose diabetes. ...Read more
Cancer cell loves sugar.R fruits not suitable as cancer patients' diet? Read sum books tat veggie n fruit diet can inhibit cancer cell.Is tat correc?
Not effective: Cancer cells survive by outcompeting your normal cells. They certainly thrive on sugar, but all cells do. If you were to limit sugar, to starve out cancer, you would starve out every other cell as well. Veggie and fruit diets have health benefits but no proven anti-cancer benefits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Chances are that this is your liver's way of telling you that it wants you to get back to that fitness-focused lifestyle you enjoyed as a teen. Why not start today? Best wishes. ...Read more
