Hepatitis B: First you should verify you have hepatitis b. 80% of hepatitis b infections clear and cause no long term damage. You are of an age that you should have been vaccinated for hepatitis b as a child. These vaccines started in 1984 for all american pediatric patients. If you do have the chronic active infection then there are medications that can fully suppress the hepatitis virus. ...Read more

Unconjugated bilirubin is conjugated in the liver and released into the small intestine in bile, the fluid in the gallbladder. Total bilirubin measures indirect bilirubin plus direct bilirubin; part of ...Read more

Hepatitis A: Relapsing hepatitis occurs in 3 - 20% of patients 4 to 15 weeks after the initial symptoms have resolved. Cholestatic hepatitis with high bilirubin levels persisting for months is also occasionally observed. Chronic sequelae with persistence of HAV infection for more than 12 months are usually not observed. Follow up with your doctor is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sgpt 950 alkaline phosphatase 298 total bilirubin 5.5 direct bilirubin 4.4 kindly answer cause obstructive jaundice or hepatitis?
My blood test results:
total bilirubin: 1.41 h
ast: 40 h
alt: 100 h
total alk phosphatase: 43 l
serum total protein: 7.1
e.R. Said hepatitis?
Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more

Considering that the american academy of pediatrics is such a staunch advocate of breastfeeding, this will be good news to many who are worried. In fact, they promote breastfeeding as the best possible way for good health and development. ...Read more
Hepatitis is an inflammatory condition of the liver. Almost all cases are caused by viruses, including most commonly hepatitis a, hepatitis b, and hepatitis c, or by toxins (eg alcohol). The liver swells, it doesn't work properly leading to a failure to detoxify some biochemical substances, and a failure to excrete bilirubin, leading to jaundice. Some cases are fatal, ...Read more
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.
