At-home liver test?: Why are you doing this?

If you feel well, and this isn't something recommended by your physician, stop troubling yourself with this. ...Read more

In my blood chemistry test i had abnormal levels in my liver. What could be the cause?

In my blood chemistry test i had abnormal levels in my liver. What could be the cause?

Liver disease, other: My best interpretation of your question is that your blood tests show abnormally high levels of enzymes that are mostly associated with the liver. This suggests damage to liver cells with leakage of these enzymes to the blood. This may be hepatitis, a toxic problem, or even potentially a tumor. Some of these enzymes may come from other cells, so depending on which it might be muscle disease. ...Read more

Hello, my son is 2.9 years old, his liver test results high level of LDH which is (H)286. what could be cause of this?

Not from liver: Young children higher levels normally than older and adults, and labs may not give normal levels for age group. The higher levels in children are due to the much higher rates of bone growth.

Will maltofer pill per day raise ferritinin too much if taken for two month? Iron level at high end and feritinin 800. All liver tests, ultr. Normal

What was the level ?: What was the level of ferritin before you take the iron supplement. If the level was very low- then after 2 months on iron- i don't expect the ferritin to go up that much. Other things has to be considered-like inflammation etc. If the level was high to begin with and yet you took the iron- then yes, it make sense now it is going up to 800. That is why you only take iron if you have low iron. ...Read more
