Hi there,
You need a complete clinical examination for determining the correct cause of your symptoms. Elevated ALP can be seen in infectious mononucleosis, bile duct obstruction, hepatitis, heavy alcohol consumption, and fatty liver. An elevated bilirubin can be due to increased red blood cell breakdown, blockage of bile transport or problems with bilirubin processing. Hemolytic anemia, acute hepatitis caused by viruses such as hepatitis A and hepatitis B, reactions to medicines can cause transient elevations in bilirubin. Chronic liver diseases such as alcoholic hepatitis, chronic hepatitis C, autoimmune hepatitis, hemochromatosis, cholangitis, pancreatitis and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis often cause a persistently elevated bilirubin level. You will need evaluation for above mentioned conditions. An ultrasound scan, hepatitis profile, fasting triglycerides, prothrombin time etc may be needed. Treatment will depend on the test results. See a hepatologist.Keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
