Low Aspartate Aminotransferase
Aminotransferase: an enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of an amino group from a donor molecule to a recipient molecule. The donor molecule is usually an Amino Acid and the recipient molecule is usually an alpha-2 keto acid. Two of the best-known enzymes in this class are serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) and serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (sgpt), both of ...Read more
ALT low 30's thru 10-yr illness. Chronic dehydration, low phosphorus, low WBC, high alk phos, L sodium, unstable glucose, H creatinine, L protein?
Not the key: I appreciate your interest in labs. Your ALT is in what most labs count as normal range. You haven't provided actually numbers for any lab, and for those you cite, only very markedly out-of-range values are helpful. No responsible physician would even direct you based on these labs, though it would surprise me if a nephrologist found you to have a mild interstitial nephritis. ...Read more
Increased aldolase, complement c3/c4 serum, sed rate, c-react. Protein, beta globulin, monocytes, bun/creatin low mcv-mch, vit d-possible causes?
Complicated: When i was doing clinical medicine, these were collectively sort of the flags for sarcoid disease but I am not saying that's the case here. This is because sarcoid is a diagnosis of exclusion so the advice is to rule out other diseases with additional diagnostic tests which can be done by a primary care physician or rheumatologist. ...Read more
Plasma Vitamin D <4.2 ng/mL
Serum Vitamin B12 -197
Serun Alkaline Phosphatase-356
Need Vits D3 and B12: You are severely deficient in Vitamins D3 and B12. I recommend 10,000 IU of Vit D3 per day, and 1,000 mcg methylcobalamin each day. Your D3 levels should be 60-70 ng/dl. ...Read more
Inorgan.Phosphate0.77, serum total protein63, serum globulin14, all slightly low. Norm. Calcium &albumin.Tsh9.25, known hypothyroidism. Further tests?
Medical illnesses: There are many medical conditions that can cause these things...In general, you have anemia, and abnormal liver function tests that need to be evaluated and treated depending on the results of why you are anemic and have elevated liver enzymes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stabilized by copper: In this case, the protein that becomes ceruloplasmin (called apoceruloplasmin) is more stable in the presence of copper. So low copper levels will cause a faster degradation of the protein that otherwise becomes ceruloplasmin. Additionally, unlike some proteins, there is no increased production of ceruloplasmin when copper levels are low, . ...Read more
No: High alts may indicate problems, but low normal alts are fine. They are never dangerous in themselves. There are a few rare diseases where alts may be very low. If it was way below low normal, ask your doc to recheck. ...Read more
May be, may be not: Further evaluation is obviously needed. I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more
I have low creatinine, high liver enzymes, low transferrin, high ferritin, low neutrophils and high lymphocytes. what could cause this combination?
Labs: Please forgive my frankness. Labs mean little in isolation. You're already carrying the diagnosis of adrneal insufficiency and Hashimoto's; I'm concerned you have Schmidt's. The iron picture concerns me for ongoing chronic inflammation somewhere, not your Hsahimoto's; low creatinine's not a worry and just how high / low your WBC's are is the key -- these fluctuate wildly from hour to hour. ...Read more
It depends: There are dozens of reasons for any one blood test to be above or below the normal value. Blood test need to be interpreted in light of the patients symptoms and physical examination findings. If unsure why a blood test falls outside of the normal range ask your doctor. ...Read more
Speak with your doc: It sounds as if your doctor is doing a diagnostic work up to include your parathyroic gland. If this is the case she may also order tests to visualize the gland as well as your bones. You may have had a recent fracture or problem that she is addressing. Hope you get to the bottom of it soon. ...Read more
High WBC, high Neut, low lymph, low K, high glucose, lowRBC, low creatine, high amylase, high AST, urine w/ protein & ketones. Treatment?
Based on the: above lab results, and without any clinical knowledge of patient symptoms and course of disease, I would have to say it's impossible to devise a plan of treatment. Please visit your healthcare provider or begin a Virtual Consult with one of our physicians to discuss diagnostic and treatment options. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
Seek cause: Vitamin d deficiency is very common today & may explain the high alk phos in an adult; it's usually due to misguided "healthy" lifestyles avoiding sunlight and vitamin-d enriched dairy products. Anemia is more worrisome and always requires a real medical workup; nutritional iron deficiency is rampant in our world but other causes must be sought as well. Good luck & stay proactive. ...Read more
Nothing: Don't waste your money on these kind of tests. It is how you feel, how you think, how you take care of yourself that matters. ...Read more
What does it mean when you have high alkaline phosphatase levels, but low bilirubin, high aspartate transaminase?
See a hepatologist: In this setting, an elevated alkaline phosphatase (also known as alk phos), may be an indicator of bile duct obstruction, but can also be elevated in a number of other diseases, including immune injury to the bile ducts, such as primary sclerosing cholangitis or primary biliary cirrhosis. Alk phos can also be elevated in the presence of liver masses and infection. ...Read more
