Mild anemia: Assuming you've had no recent bleeding episodes, these findings could be seen in mild/early anemia of chronic disease. Hgb and Hct are only boarder line low, and iron panel appears within the reference range. Even something as simple as a particularly heavy period could cause mild anemia of this type, though. If you have a chronic medical illness, it could cause this type of anemia. ...Read more
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

Should I be concerned
? Gilbert's disease: It is a familial (autosomal dominant), common (2-5% of people), unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia (blood bilirubin measures 1-5mg/dl), not due to breakdown of blood. It is associated with reduced enzyme levels of udp glycuronyl transferase, that results in jaundice when patients fast or suffer an infection. It does not shorten life or raise insurance rates, but may predispose to tylenol (acetaminophen) toxicity. ...Read more

Hematologist needed!: If you are a non-smoker, the hct of 62.5% strongly indicates a "myeloproliferative" disorder of which polycythemia vera is a variant and can give bone pain, especially if there is a high viscosity that limits blood flow and tissue oxygen delivery. The uric acid is not significantly elevated and not playing a role in your symptoms, but ongoing monitoring is required with blood disorders. ...Read more

Yes: That sounds like lab error. Your hbsab would provide immunity; i'm assuming yoru hbcab (core) is negative; i wouldn't worry, talk to your doctor about a retest if you are concerned, but even if you were infected, there is no reason for treatment at this time. ...Read more
Alt elevated (76, 63) after 2 blood tests and increased parenchymal echogenicity on us. Nafld or nash?
Continue workup: Now would be a great time to get really into aerobic fitness -- this is likely to reverse nash / nafld. You'll get checked for hepatitis c, wilson's, hemochromatosis, autoimmune hepatitis and a few others. Trust you're not taking meds or that they have been ruled out as causing the problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Resect if possible: Liver metastases are an unfortunate consequence of some cancers. Sometimes they are can be removed with surgery if the patient can tolerate it. Many times surgery is not possible, so patients need to take chemotherapy. Chemotherapy would be chosen depending on the original cancer. Combinations of surgical removal and chemotherapy have led to long prognosis in colorectal cancer, for example. ...Read more

Yes but: Alternatives are external beam radiation and radiation seeds (brachytherapy). At your age, conservative (watching) isn't advised. All of the therapies can cause urinary incontinence and e.D. - with surgery, they get better over time for most. With radiation, they get worse over time. Surgery is the time honored best of a bad situation. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
