What Does It Mean To Have An Alanine Aminotransferase Of 35
Aminotransferase: an enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of an amino group from a donor molecule to a recipient molecule. The donor molecule is usually an Amino Acid and the recipient molecule is usually an alpha-2 keto acid. Two of the best-known enzymes in this class are serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) and serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (sgpt), both of ...Read more

ALT: Alanine aminotransferase is an enzyme that is found in blood serum and in some tissues, most notably liver cells. It is commonly measured clinically in the diagnostic evaluation of liver injury. It can be significantly elevated in a variety of entities, including diabetes, heart failure, hepatitis, myopathies and other entities. When found, one needs to determine the reason for the elevation. ...Read more
ALT okay: Your alt result is okay, but a single test result may not be meaningful. Why did you have the test done? Do you have any symptoms? Please discuss your symptoms, if any, your eating and drinking, exercise, weight and other issues with your doctor. ...Read more
I did a liver profile test : alkaline phosphatase 47.1 u/l aspartate aminotransferase (sgot)39 u/l alanine transaminase (sgpt)53.7 u/l?
Get a follow-up: Expect these to be repeated iwth you off alcohol and any meds you don't truly need. There may be a hepatitis, iron overload, wilson's ; maybe autoimmue hepatitis workup in your future. You also list B12 ; vitamin d deficiency; I trust these are being managed ; the causes identified. ...Read more
67 yr-old with years of monthly blackouts, with a history of PVC's, adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism, looking for a definitive diagnosis.....?
There a several potential causes for the syncope in this lady. Of concern is that the episode on August 4th occurred without warning. This could be arrhythmic in origin. Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed.
We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's.
Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable.
Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more

Psychologial Tx of physical problems:
Andrew, your symptoms indicate the strong possibility of being the consequence of conditioning from earlier life experiences. I say this because of their cyclic nature, the act hat the symptoms are physical does not preclude the cause being psychological.
I urge you to visit www. Stii. Us for expanded information on this possibility. Treatment by Subliminal Therapy is my first recommendation with Hypnotic methods being second (www. Asch. Net for a referral for hypnosis).
Medications can mask symptoms but do not address the problem itself. When you resolve the cause of a problem, you eliminate its symptoms.
Best wishes, Dr. Yager ...Read more
I had a spot on adrenal gland, blood work results were high aspartate aminotransferase level, low phosphate level and high platelet mean volume. Help.
Test results: You are analyzing your test results and getting panicky. Relax. Talk to your doctor, who is in the best position to connect the dots. A "spot" on the adrenal may be nothing and the other test results may not be significant either. Test results need to be interpreted in the context of your symptoms and physical exam, and how much outside the normal range. ...Read more

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the information your provided does not add up. It would be prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests.

My b12 levels are always 1200-1300 and my alanine levels are high. Does it neccesarily mean something is wrong with the liver?
Maybe: Elevated B12 means nothing. You're making more of the binder protein for some reason. Nobody measures alanine, but if your alanine amino transferase (ALT / SGPT) levels are up, you'll want to know why -- if it's not alcohol, you may have a medication allergy, a viral hepatitis, iron overload, Wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, or it may be your body's way of asking for more exercise. ...Read more
Why was it tested?: To answer your question, we need to know why the test was ordered. Common reasons would be as part of testing for an acute illness or for a metabolic disorder. A common test would be for alanine aminotransferase, sometimes called a liver enzyme. "Slight" elevations are common during illnesses but should be rechecked. Another 'cause' for an elevation is the use of normal values for adults. ...Read more
