Elevated Liver Enzymes But Normal Ultrasound
Normal pancreatic enzymes, normal liver enzymes, normal CBC, normal ESR & C-RP. does this rule out pancreatic and liver cancer?
Why do you ask?: Why would you think you have this stuff at age 20? You've written about this before. You owe it to yourself and those who love you to get with someone who can help you out these thoughts out of your mind and get on with studying, getting job skills and experience, perhaps finding romance and meaningful things to enjoy. To be brave, act brave. You're anything but helpless. ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...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
Liver enzymes elevated AST 50 ALT 78 bilirubin 1.2 us showed very little fat in liver. Could this be thyroid problems? They keep fluctuating.
Very little fat?: You shouldn't have fat in your liver, period. This isn't thyroid disease; everybody's levels fluctuate. If you drink alcohol, you need to stop for a few weeks and get rechecked -- this could be your wake-up call. You'll need hepatitis b and c, medication effect, hemochromatosis, autoimmune hepatitis and wilson's ruled out. If you do have non-alcoholic fatty liver, aerobic fitness is a key. ...Read more
Shadow showing on ultrasound of pancreas, all p.enyzme levels normal. liver function normal. blood results normal only high cholesterol. cyst?
Well: You must have had a doctor who ordered the scan. Call him and have him go over the results to be sure you understand the results. Have the doctor explain to you ...Read more
Elevated amylase (250) and liver enzymes (ALT, AST). Normal abdominal ultrasound & CBC. WHat could cause this if ultrasound is normal?
Calprotectin 95, ALT & AST chronically fluctuating elevated,sigmoidoscopy normal,MRCP normal, could it be IBD causing elevated liver enzyme ?
IBD complication AIH: The calprotectin level (I'm assuming it's a stool test) is rather high 4 ur age (normal is less than 51 ug/g stool), which seems confirm IBD but unfortunately didn't spare u a sigmoidoscopy. Caveat: proton pump inhibitors like Prilosec falsely elevate calprotectin. Nonetheless, a common complication of IBD is autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) which can cause fluctuating liver enzymes & damage. TTY GI do ...Read more
AST elevated (65), ALT elevated (50) and total bilirubin elevated (3.0). All other enzymes are normal. Is this significant??
Blood test results showed elevated liver enzymes and elevated kidney function. What does this mean?
Need for evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking a history, physical examination, looking at the actual lab results and may be additional studies. Lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is in the best position to do that. ...Read more
Elevated liver enzymes. ALT- 72 AST- 59. ALL other labs are normal. Liver/gallbladder ultrasound is normal. Negative for hepatitis. What can cause it?
Need more info: 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, it may be due to alcohol intake, medications you may be taking and/or from being overweight. If you drink, stop entirely and discuss any medications you take with your doctor. ...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
Chronic elevated alkaline phosphatase. GGT normal, other blood test negative. Liver ultrasound clear. My doctors said it is a mystery of elevated AP.
Not necessarily live: Alk. Phos. can be elevated in liver disease, but the enzyme is found in other organs, including bone, biliary tract ( gall bladder), intestine and, interesting, the placenta! Certain medications can also cause an elevation.At the very least, a gallbladder ultrasound, a measurement of parathyroid hormone,calcium & phosphate levels and a review of your meds should be done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Isolated GGT elevation. Range 80-170 for 6 month. All other liver labs normal. Normal ultrasound and normal doppler ultrasound. Could this be cirhosis?
No: Trust you're taking no meds that could cause this. About one person in 1000 has a genetic kink that causes lifetime elevated ggt. These folks are accused of being secret drunkards, and I have to write one or two letters a year to concerned employers, probation officers, etc. This is not "invisible cirrhosis" unless there's something you didn't share. ...Read more
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
my blood test showed abnormal liver enzymes and elevated pancreatic enzymes. Hepatitis negative. I don't drink alcohol. Ultrasound and CT negative. ?
Other causes: Amylase, Lipase and liver enzymes can be elevate, due many other reasons such as acute cholecystitis, biliary sludge, chronic pancreatitis or even drug induced. Imaging does not necessarily pick up small gallstones or biliary sludge. Also, clinical symptoms need to be correlated with your lab work to narrow down the diagnosis. Are you having jaundice, abdominal pain, diarrhea, cramps, etc? ...Read more
Echogenicity of hepatic parenchyma upper normal but my labs are ALT 13 AST 12 does that mean I have fatty liver
No: Loose weight, avoid hepatotoxic chemicals.Get a more detailed answer ›
I had fatty liver,lost weight second scan result (Liver normal size,shape,echotexture. No gallstone), is fatty liver gone? But bilirubin 47 ALT 134
Not sure.: without seeing all of the liver test results, it is difficult to comment on what may be happening. Obviously, with your ALT elevated, there is still something wrong. I would return to your gastroenterologist for further explanation and evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more
Indigestion 2 weeks. Healthy person. Ultrasound shows normal abdominal organs, liver slightly pronounced 17.4 cm. But otherwise normal. Normal lft. Gastritis suspected. Liver concerns?
Urine amylase slight elevated (0-17) 25, regular serum amylase. Normal mrcp, CT scan, ultrasound. Any reason why urine elevated and not serum?
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
