I took a blood test when my ulcerative colitis flared up. My ast/alt level was about 65 and my platelet count was high. Is it high bc of the flare?

Platelet counts that are slightly elevated are common in inflammatory conditions, such as uc flare up. Ast and alt levels are also affected by many things, but in this range it is usually self limited. Have these studies checked again in a few weeks at your GI doctor's office. ...Read more

Ast (sgot) 33 ALT (sgpt) 39 high. What could be wrong why is the ALT high? Is this bad?

Nearly Normal: To give you a good and valid answer I would need more information. But, in general these are relatively normal and common results and I would not raise a red flag yet. I would ask my patient if there any toxic things they are ingesting such as too much tylenol, (acetaminophen) iron or alcohol.

But this is nothing to lose sleep over yet. ...Read more
