Jaundice (Definition)

Jaundice is the accumulation in the body of bilirubin. Normally it is excreted by the liver, via the bile. For a lot of different reasons, sometimes the bilirubin can accumulate. The most common reasons are a problem with the liver or the bile duct. This can make the skin and/or the whites of the eyes turn yellow. If this occurs, see your ...Read more

My mother was suffring from jaundice within 1 months total bilirubin 11.3 and sgot 2560 sgpt 2540 now sgpt 38 and sgpt 40 bilirubin is 2.7 but before 1 week bilirubin is 1.8 so why is increase 1.1 within week?

See GI doctor: the high sgot/sgpt levels suggest acute hepatitis (hepatitis A or another viral hepatitis). Bilirubin spikes and then comes down in such acute cases but may fluctuate a little as it is coming down. Best to see a doctor, get a good history (i.e., previous jaundice or elevated liver enzymes), and get blood tested for hepatitis. ...Read more

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

Viral jaundice  normal bilirubin from 4 mnths normal lft 2 mnths,  had alcohol nd slight pain in right abdomen shud i continue daily use of alcohol?

NO!: You had a significant injury / insult to your liver and want the "ok" to continue daily assault on it with alcohol? No. Particuarly when having pain? No. Daily alcohol by most persons exceeds the "one-a-day" that might be healthy, so no. Let your liver heal--takes about 2x as long as time ill (so about 8 months), then small quantiy, infrequent alcohol may be ok. ...Read more

Fasting blood work 4 months ago. TBili 1.5, DBili 0.2, AlkPhos 44, AST 24, ALT 20. Now a dull ache under right ribs. Odds it is liver? Gallbladder?

Fasting blood work 4 months ago. TBili 1.5, DBili 0.2, AlkPhos 44, AST 24, ALT 20. Now a dull ache under right ribs. Odds it is liver? Gallbladder?

Unlikely: I wouldn't be surprised if you had Gilbert's non-disease. Otherwise these labs are not suspicious for any liver problem. If this was biliary colic, you may have gallbladder disease, or a sore muscle or cartilage, or any of a number of other things. If it lasts over 2 weeks, get seen. ...Read more

Gallbladder surgery 1 wk ago. Bilirubin is 1.4 today ALT is 100 AST 40. Can bili be high due to post removal ALT 142 and AST 77 3 weeks ago. Fatty liver?

Gallbladder surgery 1 wk ago. Bilirubin is 1.4 today ALT is 100 AST 40. Can bili be high due to post removal ALT 142 and AST 77 3 weeks ago. Fatty liver?

LFTs post chole: Simple answer, is “yes!” the data you report is trending down—resolving. It could take a few weeks for lfts to return to normal after an acute attack of cholecystitis. Bear in mind, though, that upward trends could suggest a retained stone in the common bile duct. Unless an intraoperative cholangiogram was done during the surgery, then you would want to rule-out that possibility... ...Read more

Liver ALT 33 U/L? Ruq & general abd pain episodes w/back pain(for 2-3yr).New onset fatty/sometimes yellowish diarrhea &loose bm(<12mo).GB gone 6mo ago

Odd: Your serum ALT is normal. You had RUQ and generalized abdominal pain with radiation to the back for 3 years? Why did you wait so long to see a doctor? You could have postcholecystectomy diarrhea. Your doctor can tell you more about this and possible treatment options. You may want to reduce the amount of fat in your diet. Other treatment measures include antispasmodics or cholagogues. ...Read more

10 week old exclusively breast-fed baby, started having frequent green stools with mucous, immediately after his 2 months vaccinations. Normal ?

Color changes in : Infants' stools as the intestine becomes colonized with new bacteriae, until they become "adult" brown. See pediatrician for green liquid stools, especially with fever, mucus can be benign, from swallowed saliva or mucus if he has a cold. If he is fretful, not feeding or gaining weight well, check for malabsorption or food allergy. It's very unlikely that immunizations are related in any way. ...Read more
