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

Need doctor's help! Will low TSH raise liver enzymes?

Need doctor's help! Will low TSH raise liver enzymes?

No: One lab test doesn't affect another. More seriously, the common illnesses likely to produce low TSH (hyperthyroidism, hypopituitarism) are unlikely to raise liver enzymes, and even if they did, you still desereve a workup. If they're still up after 2 weeks off alcohol ; meds, continue to labs for hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's and maybe others; be ready for a rx for intensive fitness. ...Read more

Elevated liver enzymes. Decrease in TSH from .94 to .86 within 3 months. Vit D 51 nmol/L >74. Under active Thyroid? Have current blood results

It's not ever wise: To treat numbers and lab tests in isolation of the patient. I would strongly suggest you discuss this face to face with the doctor requesting this lab work. You have not provided any significant clinical information. ...Read more

Is low functioning gallbladder with elevated liver enzymes of AST 77 ALT 142 contributed by an underlying disease? If so what diseases?

Is low functioning gallbladder with elevated liver enzymes of AST 77 ALT 142 contributed by an underlying disease? If so what diseases?

Liver disease: Isolated "low functioning gallbladder" without gallstones would not commonly cause elevation of ast/alt. This could indicated fatty liver condition, hepatitis exposure, medication causing liver inflammation, etc. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist for full liver evaluation. However, if you do have gallstones then that could be a cause of the blood test results. ...Read more

Low iron, high liver enzymes, high absolute monocytes count. Any correlation?

Low iron, high liver enzymes, high absolute monocytes count. Any correlation?

No: The absolute monocyte count seldom tells us much in isolation. If by "low iron" you mean a low serum iron, you need it interpreted; if by "low iron" you mean a low hemoglobin / hematocrit, you are anemic and this is serious. High liver enzymes require a workup for alcohol and drug toxicity, hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's & others. Never focus just on labs. ...Read more

37 yr male; Lyme dis, cp, untreated hbp (165/110); very elevated liver enzymes. Lipid panel ++.'trii 850, low t.  ;tests ordered. What could cause?

Multiple causes: I'm not sure what you are asking. Cause what? Lyme is caused by a bacterial infection, hbp is often genetic but has many other possible causes, there are many possible causes of elevated liver enzymes (infections, alcohol, reactions to meds, toxins), high lipids usually genetic, low t also has many causes; you need a thorough evaluation and careful treatment, as this mix of problems is serious. ...Read more

Low haptoglobin 0.24g/l with chronic elevated liver enzymes ALT of 100 AST of 55. Asymptomatic full neg- workup for all liver diseases in a 24-year-old?

Monitor this: You need to continue follow-up with your doctor. Pathology may emerge over time, but many patients have slightly elevated lft's like yours, that never amount to any problem. In many cases, fatty infiltration of the liver is identified by ultrasound, and does not progress to actual liver disease. ...Read more

Autoimmune Disorder : The ANA speckled pattern, combined with the anti dna (was it double stranded?), the negative ena, and the elevated lfts, point to a connective tissue disorder (it may be mixed) such as lupus, sjigrens syndrome, scleroderma or poly myosotis. Other more specific tests can rule these in or out. Thyroid disease and chronic viral infections can also be at play. Your doctor will continue the search. ...Read more

Need more info: A complete history is needed! What other Med problems u have? The possibilities are many: anemia w elevated ferritin and normal MCV could be chronic disease.

I have low creatinine, high liver enzymes, low transferrin, high ferritin, low neutrophils and high lymphocytes. What could cause this combination?

Labs: Please forgive my frankness. Labs mean little in isolation. You're already carrying the diagnosis of adrneal insufficiency and Hashimoto's; I'm concerned you have Schmidt's. The iron picture concerns me for ongoing chronic inflammation somewhere, not your Hsahimoto's; low creatinine's not a worry and just how high / low your WBC's are is the key -- these fluctuate wildly from hour to hour. ...Read more

What do elevated liver enzymes and low sodium levels indicate? I have had scan, ultrasound of liver, and hepatitis panel. All of these were negative.

What do elevated liver enzymes and low sodium levels indicate? I have had scan, ultrasound of liver, and hepatitis panel.  All of these were negative.

Not easy to answer: Elevated liver numbers can result from many things. Infection, obstruction, medications, drug use, fatty liver, carcinoma, alcohol consumption, gallbladder and pancreas problems. Its great that the us was negative. But I'd suggest a ct for further clarification. Low sodium can be from a number of reasons from drinking way too much water to losing sodium inappropriately from the kidney. ...Read more

Up to 1 month: It may take up to a month of IV antibiotics, depending on the severity and specifics of your case. Evidence for benefit of additional weeks or months of IV antibiotics is mostly anecdotal , and must be weighed against the risk of line infection, adverse drug effects, and destroying the balance of your microbiome. ...Read more

Can you please just explain to me what it means to have high liver enzymes?

Function compromised: The liver metabolized hundreds of metabolites in the body. If the liver is over-burdened, poisoned, infected, or replaced by tumor, it can result in elevation of liver enzymes (sgot, sgpt, alkaline phosphatase, bilirubin). Something as simple as have 3 glasses of wine can cause elevation, but a hepatitis an is much more serious. The cause of elevation needs to be identified. ...Read more

I have high liver enzymes, got milk thistle in pills would it harm liver if I take them sense pills are bad for liver?

Not sure it helps...: The medical literature is quite mixed as to the potential value of milk thistle in treating the liver. Lots of things of course cause elevated liver enzymes, & milk thistle certainly may be of little use for many liver diseases. Talk to your liver specialist if herbal products may benefit your particular liver issue. Also, pills per se are not bad for the liver as long as you use the correct drug! ...Read more

Is it a bad idea to take levaquin (levofloxacin) if I have high liver enzymes? I was perscribed because i also have prostatitis

Possibly safe : Levaquin (levofloxacin) undergoes limited metabolism by the liver and a dose adjustment is generally not indicated. Levaquin (levofloxacin) is a generally safe medication as far as the liver is concerned, but rare and even fatal cases of liver failure have been reported. If you suffer from a medical condition causing elevation in liver enzymes, you should obtain an okay from your doctor prior to starting any new medications. ...Read more

Will adding 1/2 tsp of cinnamon 4 times a week to healthy diet hurt my liver? I already have high liver enzymes, im just trying to eat healthier.

Will adding 1/2 tsp of cinnamon 4 times a week to healthy diet hurt my liver? I already have high liver enzymes, im just trying to eat healthier.

No: Depends on type of cinnamon and how much. The toxic component of some cinnamon species is coumarin which in high doses could lead to liver damage. I would use sri lanka cinnamon over cinnamon cassia or chinese cinnamon as lower levels of coumarin are present. Congrats on wanting to eat healthier!, remember to also avoid all alcohol and tylenol (acetaminophen) products as these damage the liver. ...Read more
