Can echogenicity of hepatic parenchyma is borderline mild mean auto immune hepatitis?

Fatty liver likely: Lots of substances may "infiltrate" the liver & increase echogenicity (sound waves bounce off liver better). Fatty liver is most common--due to diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, drinking too much alcohol. Lose weight & stop alcohol consumption if these are your problems. Fatty liver with abnormal liver functions (blood tests) is however considerably more concerning than just an echogenic liver. ...Read more

No fluid present in the subacromial subdeltoid bursa moderate edema seen along the fibers of the infraspinatus muscle? What does that mean. This was due to a auto accident 2 yrs ago.

No fluid present in the subacromial subdeltoid bursa moderate edema seen along the fibers of the infraspinatus muscle? What does that mean. This was due to a auto accident 2 yrs ago.

This: This appears to be from a MRI report. It is best to discuss the findings with the treating physician, who has had a chance to take a full history and examine you.

These findings sound unremarkable in isolation. The comment on fluid is usually looking for inflammation in the bursae. If there is no significant signal of increased fluid, it is unremarkable. The edema in the infraspinatus muscle may be some fluid signal with no clinical significance. Most people with rotator cuff problems have tearing of the supraspinatus muscle first, with extension into the infraspinatus only for larger tears. The "edema" may also be normal for your age. Of note, most rotator cuff tears are degenerative and not related to a specific injury, again depending on your age.

Again, clinical correlation is always best and you should go over the study with your physician. ...Read more

I took a urine test and the doctor called back and said I have sugar in my urine, what does this mean. I am a 26 year old male who has common variable immuno deficiency and I may have propheryia or an auto immune disease, does sugar in the urine indictae

I took a urine test and the doctor called back and said I have sugar in my urine, what does this mean. I am a 26 year old male who has common variable immuno deficiency and I may have propheryia or an auto immune disease, does sugar in the urine indictae

Most: Most people don't have sugar in their urine until their blood sugar is 250mg/dl or more. But
some people will have sugar in their urine with normal blood levels of glucose. This is called renal glycosuria. It usually has little clinical significance. If your fasting blood sugar is elevated, you may have diabetes. If a blood glucose is done concurrently with finding sugar in your urine, you can sort out if you are just one of those people who spill sugar into the urine at normal blood glucose levels or if you may be diabetic. This should be checked out soon, especially if you are experiencing excessive thirst or frequent urinination. ...Read more

What does high basophil auto mean my dr. Doesn't seem concerned but my bun, potassium and vit. D keep dropping to. What could this indicate is wrong?

True true unrelated: Auto means automatic ie read by the machine not read by the tech. If the increase is not slight, a manual check is needed before drawing conclusion. BUN drop may reflect poor dietary intake and lots of liquid intake like some do when dieting. It reflects no kidney disease. Low potassium if has no readily explainable cause, like diuresis, needs evaluated by a nephrologist. Vit d needs supplements. ...Read more
