My granny was diagnosed serosis of liver and also operated laproscopically for a colorectal andeocarcenoma, 4 months post operative she is now showing increased levels of GGTP (126) & Alkaline phosphate (181). She is a 25 yrs old diabetic and 20 yrs old hypertension patient. Her current CEA levels are 3.06, ESR 35, SGOT 33, SGPT 34. What could be possible reasons for the same ?
If she has cirrhosis of the liver, then the elevated levels of the tests are likely due to this condition. If the CEA is not that high, then it would not likely be due to the cancer coming from the colon migrating to the liver. IF you have other tests done before, then this may help distinguish if there is a large departure from the baseline values. Discuss the reports with the doctor. Stay positive.
