Liver function is abnormal i got my blood work done and in report it showed that my liver function is abnormal and my white blood count is little bit high, im confused about all this. I asked my doctor but she could explain me.But she said that there is n

Make : Make sure you were screened for hepatitis. Also liver function tests can be elevated due to excessive alcohol intake, certain medications, high triglycerides, viruses, and even gallstones. If your white count is high then maybe you had or are recovering from an infection. If your liver function tests were three times above the normal than some further investigating should be done. I would start by requesting an abdominal ultrasound. You can always ask to be referred to a gastroenterologist (GI) doctor, or just ask her to explain to you in detail what your results were and what tests she did and what the plan is for the future. All the best. ...Read more

If : If all you've had done are blood tests and an ultrasound of the heart and liver, i'd say you still have a way to go before your doctor should give up. It's also a little unusual for your face to be swollen. I would look into cushing's disease as a possible cause. Perhaps a second opinion is in order? ...Read more

What do blood tests check for? I have a friend who has to get regular blood work done to check his kidneys and liver. Im worried that theyre going to fin pot in his system. Can that kind of blood test show pot?

Drug : Drug testing is very expensive. It's not routinely done because of the expense. (in fact, they way laboratories do drug testing for employment screenings is to take a small amount of blood from all the people they're testing and mix them all together and just do one test on the mixed sample. If the mixed sample is clean, they know everyone is clean and don't test individuals.) furthermore, no one can test you or your friend's blood for drugs without permission. It's considered an illegal search. Unless your friend has given specific authorization to be tested for drugs, the doctor or lab cannot perform the test. If they do, the avvo legal forum is thataway =====>. ...Read more

I recently got blood work done and my test concluded that I had high liver ldh. Why?

I recently got blood work done and my test concluded that I had high liver ldh. Why?

Tissue breakdown: Ldh, lactate dehydrogenase, is an enzyme that is elaborated during tissue breakdown. It is abundant in your body's red blood cells. Ldh is also used to evaluate lymphoma patients and check for some kinds of cancer. My guess is that you do not have cancer. You should discuss your results with your doctor and ask him/her what the next step is. You may need some other blood tests. Don't panic. ...Read more
