Hi I have transaminitis from a gallstone that was blocked in common bile duct for a year, test, meds, life expectancy ? It's progressed to my brain

Hi I have transaminitis from a gallstone that was blocked in common bile duct for a year, test, meds, life expectancy ? It's progressed to my brain

Misinterpretaton: "Transaminitis" refers to elevation of the enzymes ALT and AST that results from inflammation of the liver. Blockage of the common bile duct from any cause can elevate AST & ALT.

Talk to your doctor! ...Read more
