D Dimer Elevation With Increased Liver Enzymes
Elevated liver enzyme with normal other liver function and normal ultrasound and negative hepatitis b and c virus ??
2 thoughts:: A common cause of asymptomatic elevations in liver enzymes is fatty liver(Non alcoholic fatty liver disease: NAFLD). This is very common in obesity and is considered to be part of the metabolic syndrome. Ultrasound will be "normal" (i.e. falsely negative) in 17% of patients with NAFLD. A less common cause=choledocholithiasis(stones in common bile duct). Often missed on ultrasound. Can be asymptom ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

Ace levels high, liver enzymes high, possible sarcoidosis dx, can sarcoidosis cause fatty liver on ultrasound. Dr scheduling liver& lymph biopsy.
Sarcoidosis - Liver: The most common radiographic finding of hepatic sarcoidosis is hepatomegaly. Ultrasound can show diffuse increased homogeneous or heterogeneous echogenicity in hepatic sarcoidosis appearing similar to fatty liver. Focal liver nodules (thought to represent coalescence of small granulomas) can also be seen in hepatic sarcoidosis. Liver involvement by sarcoidosis typically responds well to steroids. ...Read more

Trust you're not taking meds or that they have been ruled out as causing the problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sir which high enzyme levels indicate significant liver damage due to alcohol? GGT levels or SGPT or SGOT levels..
SGOT / SGPT: These are better markers for damage. SGPT 38, SGOT 28 are not concerning though they're higher than most young men's. Some men run a high GGT even if they don't drink and this shouldn't be taken as proving anything. If you're drinking daily, this might be a good time to cut way back -- who really needs to be doing this? ...Read more
Mom has jaundice w elevated liver enzymes, and elevated amylase and lipase. Ct w contrast was done, no tumors seen. Could this be pancreatic cancer?
It is unclear: Hi kitten40047. The jaundice and elevated enzymes are concerning. It is reassuring to hear that the ct was negative. There may be other reasons for her symptoms. However, in the absence of any other explanation for the symptoms she has, you may want to have mom undergo additional tests, including perhaps MRI or endoscopy, which may shed more light on the pancreatic and liver areas. ...Read more
Can gilbert's also present with mildly elevated direct bilirubin (0.4-0.7)..with elevated total (1.4-2.2) Mostly indirect still some direct elevation?
Not from Gilbert's: Gilbert's syndrome causes a deficiency in the enzyme that converts indirect bilirubin to direct bilirubin. In other words, the only issue is that indirect bilirubin is converted to direct bilirubin more slowly. People with Gilbert's are not unhealthy from it and are not considered to have a "disease." If direct bilirubin is elevated, something else is going on. ...Read more
Wife has high antithyroglobulin elevated liver enzymes high cholesterol chronic nausea & abdomen pain. Dr suspects liver damage any other causes?
Can fatty liver cause elevated bilirubin? Alt 100 AST 40 bili 1.4. Gallbladder removed 1 wk low function can this cause elevations in both no stones.
Elevated bilirubin: Your total bilirubin is at 1.4, which is mildly above the normal range. You might have a condition known as gilbert's syndrome, which is a benign condition. Rarely you would see mild elevation of total bilirubin with fatty liver infiltration, unless you are at the advance stage (liver cirrhosis). Suggest to repeat lfts in 3 months. ...Read more
Ct w/contrast. Low attenuation throughout the hepatic parenchyma. Blood is ALKP 90 ALT 45 AST 28 CRP 1.7. Do I have liver cancer?
Not the right tests: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the tests you reported on are not correct ones for diagnosing liver cancer. Serum alpha feto protein level may help. From the info you provided, it is unlikely that you have liver cancer. ...Read more

Is low functioning gallbladder with elevated liver enzymes of AST 77 ALT 142 contributed by a underlying disease? If so what diseases?
Liver disease: Isolated "low functioning gallbladder" without gallstones would not commonly cause elevation of ast/alt. This could indicated fatty liver condition, hepatitis exposure, medication causing liver inflammation, etc. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist for full liver evaluation. However, if you do have gallstones then that could be a cause of the blood test results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mild diffuse infiltration fatty liver and low function gallbladder protein 8.4 bilirubin total 2.0 1.76 and diect 0.27 is this due to fatty liver?
Probably not: With the majority of your bilirubin being indirect, i.e. Unconjugated, you probably have gilbert's syndrome, which is the most common hereditary cause of increased bilirubin and is found in 5-10% of the population and is due to the reduced activity of the enzyme glucuronyltransferase. Bilirubin levels may increase under conditions of exertion, stress, fasting, and infections but is benign. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Slight elevation of liver enzymes:alt 54 hepatitis? Was vaccinated for a &b. No needle use, tattoos, blood transfusion.
Liver tests: There are about eight or 10 tests which can be termed a "liver test". Each of them has different normal values. In addition, some of the normal values vary depending on which lab performs the test. Having said all that, a good approximation of all the liver test normal values can be found here: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/liver-function-tests/basics/results /prc-20012602 ...Read more
Abnormal: Liver enzymes are found in the liver cells. If the cells are injured, the enzymes leak into the blood and the blood level increases. This can mean there is injury to the liver (hepatitis). These enzymes are also found in muscle, so heavy exercise (body builders) can have elevated levels as well. If your enzymes are elevated, it is abnormal and further testing should be done. See your doctor. ...Read more

Sometimes no reason can be found, but it is important to try to identify the cause. ...Read more
