Elevated Bilirubin Normal Ast Alt
Bilirubin is the potentially toxic product of heme metabolism. It is formed by breakdown of heme present in hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, catalase, peroxidase and tryptophan pyrrolase. Eighty percent of the daily bilirubin production comes from hemoglobin. It requires conversion to a water-soluble form before elimination from the body by ...Read more
Work up : Ignore the MCHC. Reference ranges are set so a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. Your physician will probably have you repeat the liver enzymes after two weeks off alcohol and meds, or perhaps proceed to a search for possible hepatitis, hemochromatosis, Wilson etc ...Read more
Total bilirubin 2.5 (Elevated), Direct bilirubin 0.5 (Elevated), Indirect bilirubin 2.0 (Elevated) All other liver enzymes normal. What causes this?
Rerun test: 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, you need to re do the tests in non-fasting state. With the exception of elevated direct bilirubin, the findings are consistent with Gilbert syndrome, which is not a disease. See this site for more info: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/gilberts-syndrome/basics/definition/con-20024904 ...Read more
AST elevated (65), ALT elevated (50) and total bilirubin elevated (3.0). All other enzymes are normal. Is this significant??
Last month ast, ALT all normal, albumin, globulin, bilirubin not normal, this month albumin, bilirubin, globulin normal but AST and ALT very high.Possible?
Yes: This is not only possible but commonplace. I believe we've met. Cirrhosis is a chaotic system and labs fluctuate based on activity (damage / healing). We're not going to know for certain, but if we could talk to your liver, i'd bet he would tell you he's regenerated a huge number of cells which is why he's working better and has more total cells though still bearing injury. Be glad. ...Read more
No: If these are up, usually your liver cells have been damaged somehow and are leaking their enzymes. The liver heals wonderfully but you do want to find the cause. Often it's something as simple as coming back two weeks later after stopping your Ibuprofen or your beer. If they're still up, you're in for some labs to look for serious treatable disease. ...Read more
ALT: Alt elevated means the enzyme of liver leaking into your blood after liver cell damaged. You can see, if a lot of alt in your blood means your liver has been damage a lot. That is why very high level alt is dangerous. ...Read more
Maybe Infection.: The elevation of neutrophils coukl mean bacterial infection, as these cells are important in fighting this kind of infection. The high hemohlobin seems nonspecific, in abscence of other symptoms and signs. It could possibly mean a polycythemia, one of the porphorias, or a myeloproliferative disorder, which could explain the high neutrophils. It can also be from high altitude. See dr.

Fasting blood work. Total Bilirubin 1.5, Direct Bili 0.2, Alk Phos 44, AST 24, ALT 20, Albumin 4.4, Tot protein 6.6. Is high total Bili concerning?
Not unless its inc--: reasing. Every Lab has its own Reference range, so checking with your PCP would be the best as None of us would have a clue to the Reference your lab uses. Overall your numbers are not terribly high, except the Alk phos, I think. Best check with your PCP and maybe repeat the tests after 4-6 weeks time. Good Luck ...Read more
Workup: If available, get a proper genetic workup even if no one else in the family is affected. If your amylase is high but lipase normal and there is nothing on imaging pointing to the pancreas, this may be macroamylasemia. If the pancreatitis is real, checking the cystic fibrosis and trypsinogen loci is indicated. This may be one piece in the puzzle. Be persistent. ...Read more
On ursodeoxycholic acid, transaminases chronically fluctuating elevated ALT 50-200 AST 40-80.ALP 90-107. MRCP normal,fibroscan normal,what could it be?
Difficult question: Why the ursodiol? If for blood cholesterol, there may be better options (I don't see CF or PBC on your history). Sounds like you're getting a work up for the elevated enzymes. Consider a virtual consult with GI specialist for a thorough review of lab and imaging results. ...Read more

Explanations for elevated bilirubin ? (indirect high, direct normal)...also normal hemoglobin, low platelets, other liver function tests normal
Need more info: About 2-3% of otherwise normal people have elevated bilirubin, usually less than 5.0 mg/dL. Gilbert's disease is a usual cause and it despite disease in the name, it does not adversely affect a person's health. If you have any symptoms, it would be prudent to see your doctor.

Blood results: alt/sgpt serum level=40 iu/l, serum alkaline phosphatase=43 iu/l, serum bilirubin level=2 umol/l, serum urea level=2.3 mmol/l. Normal?
Normal: It is very important to know why these were drawn in what sounds to be an otherwise healthy 19 year old. Did you expect to find something wrong? ...Read more
Hepc, cirohisis, last monthreport ast/alt veryhigh, bilirubin, albumin-abnormal range. Thismonth report ast/alt, bilirubin, albumin all normal.Isit posble?
Yes: If i understand correctly, you have known hepatitis c that has progressed to cirrhosis, had an abnormal ast/alt, bilirubin high, Albumin low last month, and all are normal this month. Will assume lab did not switch sample. Hepatitis c is a chaotic disease prone to exacerbate / remit & some medication may be the actual cause of last month's problem. How do you feel? Rx you, not the numbers! ...Read more
