i am taking tuberclouses medicine (rifampicin and ethambutal). for nearly three months. which is constantly keeping my sgpt reading well above normal limits. and i am worried. can this increase of sgpt effect my liver badly or make it fail?
and plz tell me i am waiting for my sgpt to be normal so that my docter increase some more medicine. but once my sgpt reduced to 43 after then next week it again become 54 and keep on increasing on same amount of drug
now it become 60. plz tell me why it increased again on same amount of drug?
they may need to try different medications such as a quinolone that has less hepatotoxicity. they may need to add the other medications and just follow you. the abnormal liver tests are not due to TB but due to the medications
this combination of medications can cause the liver tests to become elevated. These are mild elevations that should be followed expectantly and do not necessitate discontinuation of the medication. however, you will need to follow the tests regularly. if the bilirubin level increases you might need to stop.
dear doctor !
the thing is if i keep on continue these medicine it is not enough to cure tb. more medicine ought to be included. (that can effect sgpt more heavily) and it could only be included if my sgpt become well within the normal limits.
i am waiting for it to normalize but it is keep on increasing. so logically so it looks foolish to wait for it to normalize.
and plz tell me.
1. if sgpt not become normal, does it means that my tb is uncurable?
2. any tip to keep sgpt normal?(while taking medicines)
tell me do you have knowledge about homeopathic medicine, i have come to know that their is a complete course of one year of tb.
plz tell me if homeopathic treatment can be a good alternative? will homeopathic medicine also effect liver?
thanks for your responce.
but docter i test my sgpt every week and i experienced it that when i am more inclined to hand practice i got higher readings. and now this week i only did one time (reduced) so my reading becomes better.(from 60 to 52) this is my experience thats why it forced me to ask from you.
i cant do research on this because i am doing engineering and this is not my field. but i recommend medical students to reseach on my experience.
