Black And White Spots In Stool
Constipation, 120 ALT liver enzymes, stomach pains, black and white spots in stool for 3 months. Im a 30 yr/old male. Doc doesn't seem concerned. Help?
Get checked: Constipation, abdominal pain, black and white spots in the stool are very vague non-specific symptoms. Alt of 120 is concerning as it is high. If you drink alcohol, it may be related to that, so stop and get it rechecked. If that's not the case, i'd press on and have your doc do further work up - first recheck it. If still elevated, i'd go with hepatitis panel, liver ultrasound, etc. ...Read more
