High ALT/GPT AND AST/GOT AND GGTP, SHOULD I BE WORRIED?
I HAVE BEEN FEELING REALLY ROTTEN. MY LEGS HURT REALLY BAD. MY FEET AND ANKLES HAVE BEEN SWELLING. I HAD BLOOD WORK DONE AND IT CAME BACK WITH HIGH LIVER ENZYMES. I DID HAVE 2 OF THE HEPATITIS VACCINES BUT NOT THE 3RD, OVER A YEAR AGO. I HAD THE LIVER ENZYMES TEST REPEATED 3 WEEKS LATER AND IT CAME BACK WITH 222 ON THE ALT/GPT; 88 ON THE AST/GOT AND 109 ON THE GGTP. I AM NOW STARTING TO HAVE SHARP PAINS IN MY BACK AND SOMETIMES IN THE FRONT. SOMETIMES WHEN I BEND FORWARD THE PAIN IS WORSE IN THE ABDOMEN RIGHT ABOVE THE NAVEL. I DID HAVE GALLBLADDER SURGERY A LITTLE OVER 2 YEARS AGO. THE CLINIC REFERRED ME TO THE SURGEON, BUT HE SAYS I NEED TO BE CHECKED BY SOMEONE IN INTERNAL MEDICINE. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME AN IDEA OF WHAT THIS COULD BE?
Hey, I think you have got your abbreviations for your liver enzymes mixed up, should be something like AST and ALT which you got, but then there is SGOT and SGPT, and alkaline phosphatase. Maybe I am just not familiar with the ones you listed.
heya wmdm,im in the same boat as u,my alt(gpt) is 311 should be 0-35.my alkaline phosphatase is 154 should be 42-121.all the pains u desribe i have,my doctor has referred me immediatly 2 liver dept of my local hosp.i to got vaccinated against 2 types of hepatitas(but remember theres up 2 5 types of hep)where we may differ is im a 24yr old woman ex drug abuser,and an alcoholic.but i really think youyr liver needs looking at a.s.a.p.this is the first time ive wrote on a foram,but i no wot your goin through,i had 2,good luckxx
