Indirectly. Most people with gallbladder disease will not have any lab abnormalities. However, some of the complications of gallbladder disease may be detected by blood tests. These include common bile duct stones which can block the liver and cause liver enzyme elevation, pancreatitis which will elevate the amylase and lipase in the blood, and acute cholecystitis which may elevate the white blood cell ct.
Yes, but.. . Yes, but they are not very sensitive. Blood tests may show high white blood cell counts if the gall stones have caused an infection. If there is a lot of pressure backing up to the liver, tests for enzymes called GGT or alkaline phosphatase and for bilirubin may be abnormal. An ultrasound is usually the best test to see gall stones.

Biliary colic. Must likely it is due the gallstones. Also the liver enzymes elevation so. Cholecystectomy or remove of gallbladderis is rrecommended.
Gallstones. If you have gallstones on ultrasound then your RUQ pain is most likely symptoms of your gallstones. The elevated CRP suggests inflammation and the alk phos suggests some type of biliary obstruction. I suggest you see a surgeon in your area to discuss options. Please take a copy of your ultrasound and labs.
I have ALT of 115 and I have a 22 mm gall stone. This blood test was done now when I have flu. Ultrasound showed mild fatty liver. Is it serious?
Potentially. Fatty liver can be due to liver damage from hepatitis, excess alcohol intake or metabolic syndrome. Either way your liver is under stress since your ALT is elevated. Seek advice from your primary care, or a gastroenterologist. They can guide you toward the best treatment. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Test for hepatitis. Pancreatic cancer is pretty rare in a 22 yr old. Hepatits, though, is pretty common and itching is often prominent. It may not show up on the first test. Keep seeing your provider, who is obviously doing all the right things. You should avoid all drugs, alcohol, and medications until this is sorted out.
