Liver Cancer patient SGPT(ALT)=84 U/L, SGOT(AST)=121 U/L, BILIRUBIN=10.91 with no bile duct obstrcton in Ultra Sound. Does this mean liver is failing?

Liver Cancer patient SGPT(ALT)=84 U/L, SGOT(AST)=121 U/L, BILIRUBIN=10.91 with no bile duct obstrcton in Ultra Sound. Does this mean liver is failing?

Can't tell w/ these.: The bilirubin level is high (whether direct or indirect bilirubin) & this can lead to jaundice. However, the TREND is more important than 1 lab value - without knowing your history & past lab results better, it is hard to determine. Also, liver "function" is also measured by cholesterol, complement, & coagulation tests (INR, PTT). Even with these blood tests, sometimes a biopsy is needed. TTYD. GL ...Read more

I have elevated liver enzyme ast(sgot)412 ALT (sgpt) 317 GGT 186 dilation of the common bile duct 1 CM no gallbladder?

I have elevated liver enzyme ast(sgot)412 ALT (sgpt) 317  GGT 186 dilation of the common bile duct 1 CM no gallbladder?

Liver issue: Enzymes ast and alt are inside liver cells. When liver is injured by disease or medication, enzymes leak out, resulting in elevation. Can be due to many reasons, including medications like statins. An elevated GGT suggest biliary problems, but is not that specific. The normal common bile duct measures less than 0.8 cm, but after the gb is removed, can be 1cm. Complete history needed for this. ...Read more

What is the difference between liver cancer & cirrhosis of the liver? I have been diagnosed with primary biliary ciffhosis stage 4.

What is the difference between liver cancer & cirrhosis of the liver? I have been diagnosed with primary biliary ciffhosis stage 4.

Different problems: Cirrhosis is a complex scarring of the liver that results in disruption of both the liver cells, which must accomplish a large number of tasks, and the flow of the "rivers" in the liver that help accomplish that, by putting scars across them. The cells inside these inflamed and scarred areas are more prone to mutate and become cancerous, so that cirrhosis may lead to cancer of the liver.Good luck. ...Read more
