On a routine abdominal scan after three months of delivery, i was diagonsed with an enalrged liver with Grade 1 fatty inflitration. On further investigation of the liver functions, an elevated S.SGPT = 102 u/l (0-31 U/l) and Alkaline Phosphatase 257 u/l (0-240 u/l) was noticed. I heard that elevated Alkaline can also be a symptom of bone diseases. Before getting pregnant, i had severe pain on my right scapula region for which i underwent a bone scan and the result was negative. I still have the pain on a certain point in the scapula region and also experience numbness, but the pain is not very severe. My physician has advised me to do tests for hepatitis B and C. Please advice if this is related to liver or bone disease? What are the risk factors? What are the further check ups to be done? Thank you
