I am a new mother. Gave birth to our child 3 months back. Since delievary I have had severe acidity problems. Even after trying out all tha Antacids this does not go away.
On getting the tests done (on Doctors advice) the SGPT level was found to be 704. Also doctor had given some medicenes and the acidity was gone. My physical condition is perfectly normal. I have normal appetite and do not feel tired. Doctor thought that probably the test was not conducted and asked me to conduct the test again. This time the SGPT level was 202 (thee was a 5 day difference between the two tests).
Doctor says that I have mild hepetitis.
My question is what could have caused my SGPT to be so high ? I am feeding my child. Should I stop feeding her (as I have a fear that she might get ill)? Should I repeat the test (as I am feeling fine). I am 5'7" and weigh 78 Kg (couple of years ago weight was aroung 65 Kg).
Please advice what should I do. Do I have Hep A, B, or C. How serious is this.
You will need tests to determine whether you are suffering from hepatitis A, B or C. Hepatitis B and C are transmitted through blood and not breast milk. All infants born to mothers with hepatitis B and C can breast feed their babies. Take good care of your nipples to avoid cracking and bleeding. In case of cracked nipples it is best to avoid breast feeding temporarily since hepatitis B and C are transmitted through blood. You may give your child expressed breast milk during this time. Get your child checked for hepatitis B. If he is HBSAg negative get him immunized for hepatitis B. If you are suffering from hepatitis A there is no risk to the baby at all. Do write to us again with more queries.
