My sister (she is 14) is not feeling good at all, she had bronchitis and took dozens of pills, she has mild hypothermia now 2 weeks after treatment and blood pressure is somewhat low (100/50)
We had some blood tests done, her SGPT is high (45 U/L) and triglycerides (29 mg/dl) are low... what could this indicate? We have an appointment with the doctor tomorrow but I can't wait.. :(
How is your sister? How was her follow-up with her doctor? I understand your concern about your sister and it is good that she was able to see her doctor for direct clinical examination. What other diagnostic tests were done? Mild increase in the SGPT or liver enzyme as well as low triglycerides may be attributed to the medicines she took, her diet, and even the food she had. Monitoring of the liver enzyme may also be done. Take care and do keep us posted.
