elevated AMA results
I am undergoing evaluation to donate a kidney to brother with diabetes.  As part of my workup they did a series of liver tests to check out an elevated biliruben condition that I have had since childhood (Gilbert's syndrome).  My first set of bloodwork came back with an elevated T-bili (1.5), elevated SGPT (55) and normal SGOT, ALP, GGT.  A second set of blood tests were ordered which came back with the still elevated t-Bili (1.4), but now normal SGPT (also normal SGOT, ALP, GGT.  However, the AMA level was slightly elevated (20.3, reference range is 0-20.0).  All the hepatitius tests came back negative as did the ASMA.  The PT-INR levels were low (1.0), however.  An ultrasound of the liver was negative for Fatty liver disease.  My docotr seems very concerned about the AMA results and a possible case of PBC now or in the future and is suggesting not moving ahead with the kidney donation.  I am asympthomatic for any liver issues and do not know how to interpret these results.  Any guidance appreciated.
