I've been diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver, have multiple kidney stones. I have blood in urine for 5months now its bright red blood, no ins.

Blood in urine: Kidney stones can cause plenty of problems and can cause some blood in the urine. But bright red blood in the urine is a possible sign of something worse, such as bladder cancer. If you are unable to get in to see a urologist, you should consider going to an E.R. Btw, ultrasound is terrible at diagnosing kidney stones. You need a ct-urogram and cystoscopy. ...Read more

Specialist: My advice is to consult an infectious disease specialist. Although rare, seronegative cases of hiv do occur and require a RNA testing to detect viremia although I would expect the specialist to order any appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis in your case after he/she evaluates you. Bring all your test results to the appointment. ...Read more

I've had blood in urine for 2 years with no pain. But now I've been having a lot of pain (cramp like) in my lower abdomen followed by blood in urine.

See urologist: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor or preferably a urologist.

Would having mono 5 years ago cause a blood test to show possibility of autoimmune liver disease today?

Would having mono 5 years ago cause a blood test to show possibility of autoimmune liver disease today?

No: In fact, if you have labs suggesting autoimmune hepatitis, I would be very concerned and would be hammering away at my doctor for all the information I could get. It is possible that an old hepatitis (infectious mono, hepatitis a) may trigger autoimmune hepatitis -- the jury's out on this, but it's moot. Please comply with your diagnosis and if needed treatment, and enjoy a long healthy life. ...Read more

What happens to the plasma membrane of the red blood cells of humans with liver disease to cause the formation of acanthocytes? Thank you.

What happens to the plasma membrane of the red blood cells of humans with liver disease to cause the formation of acanthocytes? Thank you.

Change in lipids: The liver is responsible for general metabolism in the body, and the plasma membrane has a complex collection of lipids that are responsible for its "fluidity" and shape. It is believed that the apolipoproteins are abnormal in liver disease and cause fragility of the rbc membrane causing fragmentation and formation of acanthocytes.

These signs become less obvious as the liver function improves, so the lighter urine and increased appetite suggests recovery; however, it is best to check liver function studies to assess what is going on. ...Read more
