What Is Liver Necrosis In Pregnancy
Serious problem: You may be referring to a problem of either fatty liver infiltration or liver disease secondary to a condition like pre eclampsia. Either way, the process leads to an elevation in blood tests that reflect damage to liver cells due to an underlying process. This is a serious problem and needs to be addressed as to the underlying cause. If it goes untreated it can lead to more serious consequence. ...Read more
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
Enzyme deficiency: The association of cases of acute fatty liver of pregnancy with one of the inherited defects in mitochondrial beta-oxidation of fatty acids (the acronym for which is lchad), suggests that some affected women and their fetuses might have an inherited enzyme deficiency in beta-oxidation that predisposes the mother to this disorder. ...Read more
Fatty liver: Acute fatty liver of pregnancy (aflp) is a rare, potentially fatal complication that occurs in the third trimester or early postpartum period. Although the exact pathogenesis is unknown, this disease has been linked to an abnormality in fetal fatty acid metabolism. Early diagnosis of aflp sometimes can be difficult because it shares features with other common conditions such as pre-eclampsia, vira. ...Read more

What is liver metasis stage 4? Is it cancer? Considering the person diagnosed to also have tumor in the pancreas
I am experiencing flushing.
Is it common for 5HIAA to be mildly elevated?
If so, what causes this?
If my CT scan and ultrasound of the liver is normal, what is the chances of carcinoid syndrome from a midgut carcinoid tumor?
Distal metastasis.: Usually carcinoid tumors cause more syndromal symptoms than just flushing in the late stage. (Diarrhea, weight loss, etc. should occur). 5-HIAA is a metabolite (breakdown product) of serotonin; but also of tryptophan (protein found in foods) - the levels are unreliable for diagnosis but OK as a screening tool. Chromogranin-A = confirmatory test. Use HealthTap Prime to discuss- this is complicated! ...Read more
Both not uncommon: Thyroid tumors are unique in that in spite of the excessive blood supply to the gland, metastasis is essentially never found. Stimulation from pituitary can produce glandular adenomas and conversion to Ca. The liver is not a common site of primary disease such as hepatoma from Hep B and C. Rather many of the tumors are metastatic due from colon, lung, breast. ...Read more

Caution...: Fatty liver disease means the liver is swollen and enlarged due to fatty change. The disorder is associated with other metabolic changes including diabetes, high triglycerides and obesity. When the fat causes inflammation in the liver (detectable on liver biopsy) there is a greater risk of cirrhosis (scarring and hardening of the liver). If you are overweight, then weight loss is recommended. ...Read more
Maybe serious.: Sgpt in itself is not dangerous and does not lead to cirrhosis. It is a marker of liver damage. It goes up with active liver cell damage and goes down when that damage is over. Levels of 190 are fairly non specific and could be due to just about anything. You should speak with the doc who ordered the test. There are several causes of SGPT elevation that could lead to cirrhosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
