What does it mean when you have high alkaline phosphatase levels, but low bilirubin, high aspartate transaminase?
See a hepatologist: In this setting, an elevated alkaline phosphatase (also known as alk phos), may be an indicator of bile duct obstruction, but can also be elevated in a number of other diseases, including immune injury to the bile ducts, such as primary sclerosing cholangitis or primary biliary cirrhosis. Alk phos can also be elevated in the presence of liver masses and infection. ...Read more

When supplementing with OTC lithium orotate/aspartate, should blood tests still be done regularly to monitor lithium levels, same as prescription lithium types?
It depends: It depends on how much you're using. Usual doses of Lithium Carbonate for bipolar disorder are in the range of 900 mg - 2400mg/day acutely, and 400 mg-1200mg/day maintenance. At these levels, serum monitoring is needed to avoid toxicity. Lithium orotate is given in smaller (10-20 mg/day) doses -- and although much less likely to cause toxicity at that level, it still can in some. ...Read more
I would like to try magnesium supplement. What is the difference between magnesium sulfate, oxide, gluconate and aspartate. Are they all the same?
No: The sulfate & oxide are magnesium attached to inorganic molecules. They are not harmful, but inadequately absorbed. Oratate, gluconate, & aspartic acid are natural organic amino acids, which effect much greater absorption & magnesium release in the body. These organic forms are more expensive but worth it. A formulation that releases about "500 mg of elemental magnesium" is a good daily dose. ...Read more

I had a spot on adrenal gland, blood work results were high aspartate aminotransferase level, low phosphate level and high platelet mean volume. Help.
Test results: You are analyzing your test results and getting panicky. Relax. Talk to your doctor, who is in the best position to connect the dots. A "spot" on the adrenal may be nothing and the other test results may not be significant either. Test results need to be interpreted in the context of your symptoms and physical exam, and how much outside the normal range. ...Read more
I recently started taking 250mg of magnesium and potassium aspartate and am wondering if this is causing the beige/grey stool that I've had for 2 days?
Not likely: 250 mg of Magnesium-Potassium Aspartate (presumably, 250 mg of each) provides only 50 mg each of magnesium and potassium. Aspartic acid, combined with these minerals, acts as a mineral transporter, to enhance their uptake into cells. I don't know of any reason why this would alter your stool color. ...Read more

A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
