Ggt went from 58 to 88 in one year all other liver test ast, alt, bilburin, albu, globulin, all normal could new medication I take ritrovil cause this?

Not common: Retrovil is associated rarely with elevated ALT's and clinical liver disease, so it makes an isolated elevation in GGT from this medication less likely. Remember alcohol consumption can also cause an elevated GGT. Is there a reason why you are having GGT's checked if all your all liver function tests are normal? ...Read more

Possible fatty liver: If you are not on any medication or taking any herbal supplements that can cause elevated liver enzymes, the most likely diagnosis would still be non-alcoholic fatty liver disease ("fatty liver") even with a normal sonogram. Other imaging studies could confirm this, but the most definitive way to diagnose the cause is a liver biopsy. ...Read more

Living cmv & hsv1 positive (HIV -)last 22 yrs without any treatment. Recently face breathing problems, eye infection & many more. Am I need medication?

Prob no Rx needed: Most healthy people have positive tests for CMV and HSV1, and almost always no treatment is needed. You list STDs, chlamydia, HIV etc as problems or topic tags, so be sure you are tested for active infection and treated if necessary. Follow you're doctor's advice on all this, but most likely nothing is wrong and probably neither HSV nor CMV has anything to do with your symptoms. ...Read more

What is the implication of elevated Beta Globulin?

What is the implication of elevated Beta Globulin?

Nothing by itself: Trivial elevations seen on serum protein electrophoresis reflect normal human variability. Very high transferrin in iron deficiency can raise beta globulin into a spike. Rare IgA monoclonal gammopathies can make a spike here. Otherwise, ignore it. ...Read more

What does CMV mean on my blood donar card?

Cytomegalovirus: The presence of cytomegalovirus antibodies in your blood is a simple marker that you were infected at some time in your life. It means almost nothing for your health (half or more of us are +)but means something to the blood bank.

Do immune globulins lower my immune system?

Do immune globulins lower my immune system?

No: Immune globulins actually augment the immune system, by bringing in a large dose of antibodies to a particular substance. The globulins bind to whatever toxin they are targeted to and help your immune system recognize those toxins as something worth fighting. There are many different immune globulins available, such as vzig (anti-varicella) and hbig (anti hep-b). ...Read more

Thyroxin binding globulin mine is 19 new dr checked it what's is the difference to thyroglobulin? Mines 19 but tg is. 6.

Unusual measurements: Tbg increases with Estrogens and other conditions and increases the total t4. However, all this is irrelevant if your doctor measures free T4 and tsh, which accounts for thyroxine binding. I do not understand why your doctor is measuring tbg. To assess the thyroid status of someone who has had a thyroidectomy and is on synthroid, all you really need is a tsh. ...Read more

Possibly: By lab data the numbers are improved, but that is not always a clear indication of the state of the cells in the liver. You need to discuss these values with the liver doctor who ordered them. There are numerous possible interpretations. ...Read more

What could a high immunoglobulin g 1660 and low a1 globulin 1.9 & a2 globulin 10.6 mean?

IgA Deficiency: Sounds like selective IgA deficiency, if these are the results. Selective IgA deficiency is the most common immunodeficiency in the world and is usually benign but needs to be followed. IgA def in women is more significant since it can convert to common variable immune deficiency and there is HUGE risk of lymphoma development in the 50's-60's. See an immunologist ...Read more

My gamma globulin is 2.3 (normal ran 0.5 - 1.6). I feel fine and the rest of my labs are normal. Should I be concerned?

No: So long you are fine, you didn't mention why were the tests ordered in the first place, and what were the other labs?
