Elevated alkaline phosphatase value of 125 U/L. Is this a sign of primary biliary cirrhosis? Could the level be due to my Hep B?
High level,,,: This is a high level for alkaline phosphatase certainly, but to say it's from primary biliary cirrhosis is harder as there are other things like high bilirubin and symptoms like itching and jaundice (yellow skin) and antibodies like anti-mitochondrial antibodies. It also could be due to Hep B or any increased liver activity or other things and it's not that high so see your Dr. For other tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have tested with a non fasting blood glucose level of 144 and a fasting level of 126. My A1C is 5.8. Is this considered diabetes or prediabetes?

In any case, you'd be more interested in the absolute values of Albumin (is it low?) and globulin (is it high?) these are at best pointers for the workup of unexplained symptoms / signs.

Your BUN is 29 ( normal < 20) but that could be due to either mild dehydration or high protein in body( unless you are actively bleeding) . Your creatinine is 0.53 which is great.The ratio is BUN/Cr 29/0.53 = 54.7 . Your GFR another number we look seriously at is 128 great, potassium is 4.4 normal . Do not worry it is an artifact of the math ...Read more

What does high glucose , blood urea nitrogen and creatinine but low GFR usually indicate diabetes or kidney problems?
Find the cause: Level itself doesn't matter. It's a warning of possible underlying disease. You can raise your ALT very high just from a boozy weekend, while even a low ALT elevation may be the subtle clue that alerts your physician to hemochromatosis or Wilson's -- easy to treat, if detected, fatal if missed. ...Read more
