Very high levels of liver enzymes are more commonly found in viral hepatitis, liver damage, biliary duct problems, infectious mononucleosis,congestive heart failure or myopathy.I feel the possibility of infectious mononucleosis or viral hepatitis high in your daughter,s case.
Hepatitis A is an acute infectious disease of the liver caused by Hepatitis A virus which is most commonly transmitted by the fecal-oral route via contaminated food or drinking water.Symptoms are like that of influenza and sometimes patients may show no symptoms at all.Diagnosed by anti Hep A IgM antibody testing. IgM antibody is only present in the blood following an acute hepatitis A infection. It is detectable from one to two weeks after the initial infection and persists for up to 14 weeks.
Hep E is viral hepatitis caused by hep E virus. The incidence of hepatitis E is highest in adults between the ages of 15 and 40.It usually goes away by itself and the patient recovers within a short time.Also transmitted by feco oral route and diagnosed by blood tests for anti Hep E antibodies.

As of now, she is little tired of eating non-spicy boiled food & at times asks for Branded Ice Cream or Barbecue Chicken.
Could you be kind enough to give an idea of her Diet.
Otherwise, she is doing well, staying at home- bored!!!
Some of the diet are to be avoided in hepatitis.Pls remember,some the enzymes which aid in digestion are released by liver.If the liver is diseased,taking some particular foods puts an extra pressure on the diseased liver.Some of the foods that are to be avoided are animal products,fruit juices,artificial sweeteners lke saccharin,junk food, caffeine, including colas, chocolate, coffee,bleached white flour,hydrogenated oils,processed foods and shellfish.

Hellow. I am Sameer and had written to you as below.
have tested for Liver Function Test
The only OUT OF RANGE FACTORS ARE AS BELOW
SGPT - 107
SGOT - 78
I am a frequent drinker.
I am geting skin reddish iticy rashes for last few weeks
after i consume alcohol.
requesting you to advise on the critical levels.
For you you have guided me superbly.
Now there are some developments.
I am getting swelling on my frontal face eyelids, lips
cheeks and chin with bumps as well.
This does not happen always when I drink alcohol.
But yes it happens that I had alcohol for a day or 2 before
then i get this, not always.
Yesterday I had huge swelling of my eyelids and lips
They seemed to be bloated 2 to 3 times the normal size
I also hads bumps on cheeks and chin. It was so horrible
that I had to take steorid injection to subdue it.
Please advise on the causes.
I am a frequent traverller and intending to
take medical adivse with my test results.
Also m thyroid results were normal as is my BP.
Please advise on the causes and as to which
type of medical practitioner I should refer.
Also is this an allergic reaction to Alcohol.
Are you taking some drugs like metronidazole which can interfere with the metabolism of alcohol and causes disulfiram like reaction?Your symptoms are suggestive of either a disulfiram type of reaction or an allergic reaction to alcohol.
It is usually not the alcohol that produces the allergic reaction to the wine or beer. The other ingredients in the alcohol, such as yeast, sulfur dioxide, and additives are often the culprits. Beer may contain a variety of ingredients, including barley, corn, wheat, and rye that may precipitate an allergic reaction while wine contains sulfites.
I feel that it is important to find out the ingredient in alcohol to which you might be allergic.For that pls consult an allergy specialist and get skin ***** tests and blood tests for allergy done. If the skin testing is negative, it is likely that you are intolerant to alcohol. If the skin testing is positive, you should avoid food and drink that contain that specific ingredient. Avoidance of alcohol is the main treatment available.Other treatment options include antihistaminics,corticosteroids and immunotherapy.
Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries.
