Liver (Definition)

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

Liver blood values got 50 u/l-gpt 84 u/l-ggt 118 u/l , big problem?  Had much alcohol past 2 weeks, stopped 2 days before test

I'm happy for you: Congratulations on recognizing the problem. Your physician will probably ask to have these repeated in two weeks off alcohol. They will probably be normal. You have dodged a bullet. Your life will be far better without alcohol, and my hope is that the new friendships and activities that you find will be as richly rewarding as others who have had the same experience. ...Read more

how long does acute alcohol hepatitis last? I had liver discomfort wen I quit drinkin.Bloods taken 2weeks after I quit. Normal. How likely I had it?

 how long does acute alcohol hepatitis last? I had liver discomfort wen I quit drinkin.Bloods taken 2weeks after I quit. Normal. How likely I had it?

Complex, no reliable: simple answer. Hepatitis is a catch-all term meaning liver inflammation. Alcohol, viral infections & fat storage from high carb intake are all drivers, yet most damage missed until severe enough, long enough. If very healthy, liver can regenerate from as much as 90% loss within 3-4 months, yet many variables. On lab, look for albumen high normal (e.g.) >4.5 mg/dL, bilirubin low & 3 enzymes low. ...Read more

If I take a liver enzyme blood test, will it detect alcohol I drank?

If I take a liver enzyme blood test, will it detect alcohol I drank?

No: If you want to know the level of alcohol , then your doctor have to order blood alcohol level specifically. The liver enzyme test will not tell you alcohol level. However, alcohol certainly will affect your liver function. If you have been drinking a lot for many years, alcohol can lead into liver cirrhosis and risk for liver failure and liver cancer. ...Read more

If someone was drinking alcohol every other day over limit, would liver blood tests usually be abnormal if some sort of damage is occurring?

If someone was drinking alcohol every other day over limit, would liver blood tests usually be abnormal if some sort of damage is occurring?

Over limit??: which limit is that. The safe limit for drinking in men is no more than 2 standard drinks (2 12 oz. beers, 2 5 oz. wineglasses of standard wine, 3 oz 80 proof spirits) per day, no more than 14 per week, and no more than 4 on any one occasion. Even at that level, some people will get liver inflammation. Liver enzymes (ALT, AST) are very sensitive to inflammation and will generally be elevated. ...Read more

Blood disorders .What conditions cuase blood to be thin, genteic/disease.Is it liver, bones?Alcohol Intolerant,always have been.what test is needed?

Too general: This would take a textbook to answer. Dozens of common genetic diseases make blood less prone to clot; and there are hundreds of causes of anemia alone. You're fortunate that alcohol does not agree with you, but this is unconnected. If you've been told you have "thin blood", demand a scientific diagnosis. Best wishes. ...Read more

My friend had one beer last night. Tomorrow he is to take an etg alcohol test..  What can he do to get rid of the alcohol in liver, blood, and system?

Wrong Forum: I am sorry to report to you here that we really are physicians and are not in any way interested in helping people beat or scam drug and alcohol testing. People die from alcohol and drug misuse and abuse. If one has legal consequences from their use of these mind altering substances then there may be a reason to stay sober or to get to a serene understanding that they should not drink. ...Read more

Hematology .What conditions cuase blood to be thin, genteic/disease. Is it liver , bones . Alcohol Intolerant, always have been.what test is needed?

Long list...: Generally, when people mention "thin blood," they mean difficulty with clotting (having a bleeding disorder). This can be due to liver disease, medications, bone marrow problems, and genetic issues with deficiencies of certain blood factors (or acquired deficiencies later in life). Alcohol abuse can also lead to this in a couple of different ways. Blood testing can help identify causes. ...Read more

RUQ pain: Have your tests included an ultrasound and or ct scan to thoroughly evaluate the right upper quadrant of the abdomen? I would be interested in checking for gall stones, rib cage abnormalities, although sludge in the gall bladder or certain gall stones may not be visualized. If symptoms persist consultation with a gastroenterologist or abdominal surgeon would be worthwhile. ...Read more

Alcohol: Why would you want it back? I know not a single benefit of it other than questionable cholesterol related one. There are some many other tasty drinks you can take instead, but make sure not to supplant with soft drinks such as coke, sprite. They are not good for you either. ...Read more

Returned from a week of binge drinking & had a blood test done next day GGT 275 & HBsAb 2.0 Is alcohol the reason and is my liver damaged?

Let's sober up!: Truth be told, Ms. Deb, I'm glad you wrote. You're liver's not happy about that alcohol, and is hurting, but nothing that won't heal with sobriety. The HBsAb just means you're immune, perhaps immunized. My sense is that you already regret the binge drinking, and realize that the real danger is to your life, your brain, your career, and your relationships with those who love you. Let us help you. ...Read more
