Liver Function Test Alt 59 Ul
Liver cell ,bile tes: Sgpt (alt) is a test of liver cell (hepatocyte) activity; increased with liver cell inflammation. Ggt is a test of bile flow. Anything that decreases flow of bile within cells, down tiny canaliculi, small ductules, and larger ducts will cause increase; can be due to inflammation, scarring, stone, tumor, etc. Drugs can increase either or both. ...Read more
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

Will Valium and alcohol affect your alk phos, AST and ALT levels when a liver function test is performed. Alkphos29, alt110, ast38 bilirubin dir 0.4?
Liver function tests: Although valium is metabolized by the liver, it does not increase or decrease liver enzyme activity. Alcohol, on the other hand, depending on the amount consumed & frequency of consumption, can significantly elevate liver enzyme levels to a lesser or greater degree. Your alt is about 4 x normal; ast & direct bilirubin r minimally elevated; alk phos is ok. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can also affect liver enzymes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on biopsy: Cirrhosis can only be truly proven by a liver biopsy. Certain lab tests, such as bilirubin, INR, albumin, and platelets are often used as surrogate markers of liver function, and are an indirect estimator/predictor of cirrhosis. Additionally, imaging such as ultrasound or CT can suggest cirrhosis. But again, a biopsy is technically needed to prove the diagnosis of cirrhosis. ...Read more
Bilirubin total high 3.5, normal liver function test, negative Gilbert's syndrome, bili direct normal 0.2, normal cbc, what could cause mild bili?
Liver enzymes elevated AST 50 ALT 78 bilirubin 1.2 us showed very little fat in liver. Could this be thyroid problems? They keep fluctuating.
Very little fat?: You shouldn't have fat in your liver, period. This isn't thyroid disease; everybody's levels fluctuate. If you drink alcohol, you need to stop for a few weeks and get rechecked -- this could be your wake-up call. You'll need hepatitis b and c, medication effect, hemochromatosis, autoimmune hepatitis and wilson's ruled out. If you do have non-alcoholic fatty liver, aerobic fitness is a key. ...Read more
Any symptoms?: Why were these tests done? All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it does not seem to be a serious issue, however the elevated AST may be due to alcohol, medications you may taking or if you are overweight. Discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more
Blood test results showed elevated liver enzymes and elevated kidney function. What does this mean?
Need for evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking a history, physical examination, looking at the actual lab results and may be additional studies. Lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is in the best position to do that. ...Read more
Best serum tests for liver damage (fibrosis/cirr.)? Ggt, apo a1, a2 alpha gammaglobulin, ldh, haptoglobin? Others? How to interpret? Caff breath test?
Need more tests: Serum tests may never become abnormal from fibrotic or cirrhosis until late. Ultrasound abdomen is good. Ct may help. Liver biopsy is best. Usually clinical history helps. Nonalcoholic fatty liver is emerging as a new and potentially big problem and is mostly diagnosed incidentally on ct or ultrasound of abdomen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Two enzymes: If they're high in the blood, they've often leaked from injured liver cells. They're not dangerous by themselves, but they mean the cause needs to be found. Alcohol, meds, hepatitis, hemochromatosis and wilson's will be ruled in / out, but perhaps the most common cause in the us today is simply lack of exercise. ...Read more
Total bilirubin 1.2 direct bil .7 indirect bil .50 alk 49 AST 25 ALT 29 this was for liver test. Is my liver healthy ?
Calprotectin 95, ALT & AST chronically fluctuating elevated,sigmoidoscopy normal,MRCP normal, could it be IBD causing elevated liver enzyme ?
IBD complication AIH: The calprotectin level (I'm assuming it's a stool test) is rather high 4 ur age (normal is less than 51 ug/g stool), which seems confirm IBD but unfortunately didn't spare u a sigmoidoscopy. Caveat: proton pump inhibitors like Prilosec falsely elevate calprotectin. Nonetheless, a common complication of IBD is autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) which can cause fluctuating liver enzymes & damage. TTY GI do ...Read more

Workup: Your workup might go like this. Stop all alcohol & meds for two weeks. If transaminases ast/alt normal, you have the explanation. If not, bloodwork for hepatitis b, c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, maybe autoimmune hepatitis & antitrypsin. All but antytrypsin are deadly-but-treatable, your life was saved. If still no diagnosis, lifestyle with focus on aerobic fitness may improve numbers & your life. ...Read more

The liver is "life". The liver not only creates essential proteins and energy resources, but it also "detoxifies" the body through creation of elements like bilirubin while additionally breaking down a vast variety of chemicals (medications, toxins, etc.). The medical industry tests the "function" of the liver via a "liver function panel". This test looks at liver ...Read more
