Also, fiber only works if u are well hydrated so increase water, juice etc. See a GI specialist to rule out another cause of your problem. Fiber supplements then be added until you have regular bms. A colonoscopy can rule out a polyp or blockage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Seek cause: It's not the SGPT that's going to hurt you, it's whatever is making the SGPT high. Your physicain will take you through the workup.

ETG test: Is there a list of pers. care ingredients that cause/yield incidental exposure to alcohol or its breakdown products? Is Phenoxyethanol one?
Don't know of a list: but phenoxyethanol would not be on it in any case. Ethanol is NOT absorbed through intact skin, and in this product, the ethanol is complexed with a benzene ring that does not allow it to become free. Only alcohol containing mouthwashes that are swallowed, and skin sanitizers that are inhaled can cause positive ETGs. If a sensible cut-off (250-500 ng/ml) is used, this eliminates most of them. ...Read more

All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. ...Read more
