Suspect...: ... Mild metabolic syndrome and a fantastic improvement in your overall health with a new focus on aerobic fitness-based lifestyle. In the meantime, let's rule out hemochromatosis, wilson's, and atoimmmune hepatitis. Just my thoughts. Glad you're taking a proactive approach to your health. ...Read more

Bilirubin total1.8 higher than range1.2. hdl-chole 36 (>46) abnormal. Prolactin 31.7 higher than 30. Something wrong with my liver?

Bilirubin total1.8 higher than range1.2.
hdl-chole 36 (>46) abnormal. Prolactin 31.7 higher than 30. Something wrong with my liver?

Many possibilities: Elevated bilirubin MAY indicate liver disease. However, if you are not sick, it may also be due to a (mild and non-threatening) hereditary condition called Gilbert's syndrome. Some drugs cause elevated prolactin and/or elevated bilirubin. And of course, pregnancy increases prolactin levels. All this information needs to be put together by a doctor who knows your whole case. ...Read more

Is it true that gross fed butter, egg yolks, goose liver etc are good for heart. Reading that they raise levels of HDL infact? True?

Is it true that gross fed butter, egg yolks, goose liver etc are good for heart. Reading that they raise levels of HDL infact? True?

HDL level: Hdl levels are difficult to raise, especially for males and smokers. Good fat helps us so don't fear eating eggs. Niacin can be used to raise HDL and help overall cholesterol levels but your doc will need to follow you because it effects the liver. I've found that exercise is a way my patients find help w/choleserol and overall health. ...Read more

Fitness: I trust that hepatitis c and wilson's have been ruled out. You'll be doing more than just your liver a major favor if you embrace an aerobic-fitness-focused lifestyle. That's going to involve finding a group of folks like yourself who do some strenuous physical activity that you enjoy. Despite all the talk of beet juice and metformin, this is still the best advice i know. Be proactive & good luck. ...Read more

Sgpt  is 41.2 u/l cholesterol 4.23 mmol/l tri 1.10 HDL .081 LDL 2.92. Doctor says I have fatty liver. What to do?

Fitness focus: Different people will offer you different bits of advice, there are meds and so forth, but one of the keys to health -- unless your physician strongly disagrees -- will be to find an aerobic exercise that you like and pursue it aggressively. Livers, like muscles, need to be exercised. Best wishes for a new and happier direction for your life. ...Read more

More info needed: Cholesterol parameters appear favorable. Unclear what you mean by liver function low. Sometimes the liver function tests are elevated, and since you noted you are obese, liver ultrasound occasionally done to evaluate for fatty liver or other liver cause for aberrant liver values. ...Read more
