Test for high LFT's: There are 2 kinds of liver enzyme abnormalities--that signal disease of the liver cells or of the bile ducts. Abnormal liver tests may reflect fatty liver, too much alcohol, toxic exposure, occupational exposures, lot's of viral infections, metabolic problems, familial liver diseases, as well as problems with gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. Start with blood tests to identify possiblities. ...Read more
What happens to the plasma membrane of the red blood cells of humans with liver disease to cause the formation of acanthocytes? Thank you.
Change in lipids: The liver is responsible for general metabolism in the body, and the plasma membrane has a complex collection of lipids that are responsible for its "fluidity" and shape. It is believed that the apolipoproteins are abnormal in liver disease and cause fragility of the rbc membrane causing fragmentation and formation of acanthocytes.

How often do glial cells multiply and divide? Particularly glial cells in the brain stem? What causes cancer to form here? How many mutations?
Can the mitosis of cancer cells be stopped by inserting the appropriate signal molecule into cells?
Hopefully: This is one of the ideas behind targeted therapy. One of the first successful approaches has been in chronic myelogenous leukemia where the abnormal protein that causes cell division at an enhanced rate is blocked by a designer molecule. This has resulted in long term remissions and preference for this approach over the prior gold standard of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does rare squamous epithelial cell laden with bacteria present on cytopsin slide it's the result from my sons bronchoscopy ?
Bronchoscopy AND analysis of specimen: Bronchoalveolar lavage, washings or brushings minimizes the contamination with upper respiratory flora and therefore increases isolation of the etiologic agent. However, the procedure is invasive. If bronchoalveolar lavage, washing or brushings fail to diagnosis the etiologic agent of pneumonia, a percutaneous transtracheal aspiration or lung biopsy may be collected. These are extremely invasive procedures, but will yield a sterile specimen, free of contamination from the normal flora of the upper respiratory tract ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What can be the cause of haematuria, polyurea and in urine microscopy pus cells(10 in number) epithelial cells, leucocytes?
Could be infection: Sounds like it could be a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) But there are other possibilities. UTI's often show blood cells in the urine (hematuria) & leukocytes (white blood cells=pus=pyuria) are also present. However epithelial cells (skin cells) in a urine specimen can indicate that the urine specimen was not properly collected & has some cells from outside the urinary tract, too. Ask your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: Two of the commoner causes for shortened red cell life span are auto-immune hemolytic anemias and hemoglobin disorders like sickle cell disease. Malarial parasites also destroy red cells. Deficiency of G6PD can cause red cell destruction in combination with oxidants. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk prodFor good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats.

In MOST cases of bacterial orchitis that causes ATROPHY what cells are destroyed by the infection? Are the leydig cells first affected or what?
Symptoms of SS: The altered shape of the red blood cells causes them to stack up together and clog blood vessels, depriving the tissues of adequate blood supply and oxygen. The tissues then die (infarct) and this causes pain. The red cells also rupture or are eaten by the spleen and cause anemia. The spleen itself will gradually infarct, leaving the patient susceptible to infections. ...Read more
