Difference of opinion over LFTs
Posted By FB on January 07, 1999 at 13:32:39:

My ALT, AST, and GGPT have been mildly elevated for almost
10 years. (I am 38, no alcohol)
A hepatologist says that even though the elevations are mild,
they have been longstanding, and the irritation/inflammation
will eventually have major negative consequences for my liver
in another 10 or 15 years, regardless of cause.
My internist says that with some causes of mild elevation, I
can go on indefinitely with no further consequences.
Is this an issue over which there is disagreement?
(my other symptoms inlcude pain in upper right quadrant, pain
over right ovary, body temp elevelated mildly, chest pressure,extreme fatigue, weight loss. No cause has been found - no hep a, b, or c, no ANA or antimitochondrial antibodies, US finds only small hemiangioma. Do not want a biopsy because I another health setback may cost me my profession)
