Diet or generic...: Dietary foods can make Coumadin levels go up and down, so can certain medications. If all else is the same, the biggest cause is getting generic Coumadin (warfarin). The fda allows generic houses to be +/- 20% bio-equivalent of their trade name partners, so a dose could theoretically be off by as much by 40%. Ask your doctor to try trade name coumadin, be careful with a drug with a narrow range. ...Read more
My mothers sgpt does not go down even if she's taking medications. What tests does she need to have to determine the cause of this high sgpt level.
???: It evades me thinking what medicine is used to lower sgpt. If the cause of the rise of liver function is known then we can target the cause but there is no medicine that targets the sgpt. Talk to the doctor to find out the diagnosis and find out how that problem is being treated. The lowering of SGPT may not be a necessary solution and may have to stay a bit elevated. ...Read more

Large goiter what could be causing my levels to keep going up and the meds not to work. Could you please give me some examples of what may cause this?
I don't: Know what levels you're referring to and what meds don't work. A goiter is often associated with an underactive thyroid which is easy to treat with appropriate amounts of daily brand name T4 replacement. The goiter will generally not enlarge further after that. An medical exam, other lab and an an ultrasound are indicated at least initially. Check w/your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

High salivary amylase in serum that drops down to normal when doing prep for colonoscopy, and rises again after that: what can be the cause?

Bp: why mess with normal, worry about something else ...Read more
Chill, but not much: I advise patients to check their bp first thing in the AM. Sitting down, arm relaxed. I like the Omron automatic cuff (around your upper arm; do not use a wrist device). Keep a diary of your bp and bring to your MD for review if the pressure averages are elevated (greater than 130-140/80-90). Remember, bp is dynamic and being too calm and relaxed is not your "normal" state. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
