Liver damage? Thoughts?

To be able: To provide you an appropriate interpretation of yo a lab test I'm more information necessary. This would include any history around when the testing was completed, what your passed blood testing has demonstrated, just to name a few things. In the end, you would be best suited by considering a formal consultation wear a more thorough evaluation and assessment could be completed. ...Read more

Liver (Definition)

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

Test result for Alk Phosphatase below standard range. Others (total bilirubin, bun, albumin, total protein) also low. What could this mean? Next step?

See your clinician: There may be nothing "wrong" with you. Note that no test is perfectly accurate. Also, if you're at very low risk for a disease, an abnormal result is less likely to be true. You need to sit down with a clinician to review your tests in light of your overall personal & family medical history, physical findings, & health goals. Next steps include further tests, & watch & wait. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Total protein 7.7, Albumin 4.0, total bilirubin 0.4, ALP 131 (norm up to 116), ALT 55, AST 24. Concern for liver failure? Doc said nothing onhigh ALP

Total protein 7.7,  Albumin 4.0, total bilirubin 0.4, ALP 131 (norm up to 116), ALT 55, AST 24. Concern for liver failure? Doc said nothing onhigh ALP

Alkaline phosphatase: it is difficult to interpret labs without knowing the medical setting under which they were drawn. Having said that, there are many things besides liver issues that can cause a slight increase of alkaline phosphatase. I would recommend talking to your doctor about this, and perhaps having a repeat blood draw in 1 to 2 months. Good luck. ...Read more

My friend has a total bilirubin count of 9 from a blood liver function test. Is it too high? Is there any risk on life? What should be done?

My friend has a total bilirubin count of 9 from a blood liver function test. Is it too high? Is there any risk on life? What should be done?

High!: 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, bilirubin level of 9 is high and she should seek care from a doctor, immediately, to determine the cause and address it accordingly. ...Read more

I am diabetic..My lab test result show total bilirubin of 1.55 mg/dL direct bilirubin 0.44 and indirect bilirubin 1.11, other liver function test is n?

I am diabetic..My lab test result show total bilirubin of 1.55 mg/dL direct bilirubin 0.44 and indirect bilirubin 1.11, other liver function test is n?

Sometimes it is norm: Mild elevation of bilirubin in the presence of normal liver enzymes is not uncommon. It is an inborn mild defect which has no consequences. If you feel well, there is nothing further to be done. Note any previous Liver function tests and also watch it in future. Once, confirmed you can ignore it in the future. ...Read more

Nothing to worry: Your Liver functions appear to be normal other than slightly high Albumin level. The latter finding is harmless. Why did you have these tests done in the first place??? ...Read more

A recent liver function test puts SGPT/ALT at 33, Alkaline Phosphate at 142, Albumin at 3.1. Are they indication of any problem?

A recent liver function test puts SGPT/ALT at 33, Alkaline Phosphate  at 142, Albumin at 3.1.  Are they indication of any problem?

May be: 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, your liver enzymes are not bad, but your albumin is low and suggests inadequate intake of protein. You should consider increasing your protein intake by eating meat. If you are a vegetarian, take more lentils, beans and tofu. ...Read more

What could low ceruloplasmin in the event of normal liver function test results mean? normal bili/albumin/inr/alt/ast/ggt but low ceruloplasmin

What could low ceruloplasmin in the event of normal liver function test results mean? normal bili/albumin/inr/alt/ast/ggt but low ceruloplasmin

How low?: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthy folks have any given value out of range at one end or the other. Without elevated ALT/AST, Wilson's is unlikely. Some folks genetically run a low ceruloplasmin and it means nothing. ...Read more

Mixed jaundice: You need a proper liver workup. You're seriously sick. You may be asked to repeat the tests off alcohol and meds. If this does not fix things, a check for hepatitis B, C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, and a few others. ...Read more

Have a BUN level of 19 and a Creatinine of .80. Total protein is 7 and Albumin is 4. I have been urinating frequently and urine is becoming foamy.

Infection or Diabete: I am not sure why you shared your normal lab values but frequent urine in a man is a prostate or bladder issue in general and is usually a sign of infection or inflammation. The next possible reason would be diabetes. ...Read more

Labs show a bun of 2, but total protein plasma is high at 8.4. Albumin is 3.8. Feeds are formula and past low bun has been lack of protein. ?

Probably ok: Everything has to be taken in context. There are no simple answers. BUN is a waste product of protein metabolism and low level is not necessarily bad . The Albumin level is good and reflects enough protein nutrition. In this case total protein may be high because of high globulins which again may be ok in a 9 yr old. Normal weight and growth is more reliable, + indicative health than lab test. ...Read more

If a patient suddenly develops hyperbilirubinemia, i.e., total bilirubin 76 umol/L (with albumin 35 g/L; protein 69 g/L; ALP 133 U/L; Gamma GT 76 U/L; ALT 21 U/L and AST 29 U/L) then should it be investigated further and can anything be done about it? Doe

Yes: it looks like you have hyperbilirubinemia with normal transaminases. It is unclear whether it is predominantly direct or indirect or if albumin is 35 or 3.5. Suspect possible he hemolysis. Follow up with your Internist may helpful ...Read more

Not unless its inc--: reasing. Every Lab has its own Reference range, so checking with your PCP would be the best as None of us would have a clue to the Reference your lab uses. Overall your numbers are not terribly high, except the Alk phos, I think. Best check with your PCP and maybe repeat the tests after 4-6 weeks time. Good Luck ...Read more

Total Bilirubin (Definition)

Bilirubin, a product of hemoglobin breakdown, is present in two forms in the human body: unconjugated (indirect bilirubin, insoluble) and conjugated (direct bilirubin, soluble). Unconjugated bilirubin is conjugated in the liver and released into the small intestine in bile, the fluid in the gallbladder. Total bilirubin measures indirect bilirubin plus direct bilirubin; part of ...Read more


Liver Function Test (Definition)

Are groups of clinical biochemistry laboratory blood assays designed to give information about the state of a patient's liver.[1]the parameters measured include pt/inr, aptt, albumin, bilirubin (direct and indirect) and others. According to some[who?], liver transaminases (ast/alt (sgot/sgpt) are not liver function tests, but are biomarkers of liver injury in a patient with ...Read more
