I seem to be having several issues at once and am not sure what to make of some test results I just received. I also posted this question on the liver disorders community board. I went to my Dr. with terrible insomnia and he decided to check several things. My complete test resluts came back with these abnormalities. My Bilirubin is 2.5 (.2-1.2 being normal). My platelets are 133 (140 - 400 being normal) and my RDW is 15.2 (up to 15.0 being normal). MY AST and ALT were normal. Someone suggested scirrhosis but I have no symptoms and don't drink. I am wondering about a thyroid problem or pernicious anemia. Anybody have any ideas. I don't see my Dr. for another month and 1/2 so wondering how I might have gotten scorrhosis for that lenght of time is quite tortorous. I am 35, 105 lbs. and generally healthy.
