Could someone help me read my wifes liver test. She's 5'3 103 lbs and 35 years old. Some seemed a little high but I'm not sure. Thanks.
Hemoglobin 15.9 g/dl
Hematocrit 46.4 %
MCV 102 fl
MCH 35.0 pg
AST 75 IU/L
ALT 61 IU/L
Come on, all these educated people on this board. Someone has got to be able to read these results. I trust my Dr. but always like to get a second opinion. Thanks guys.
Hemoglobin and Hematocrit are very good and at high end of range (a good thing).Originally Posted by Markum1
MCV and MCH are based off of hemoglobin, so they are good.
The normal value for AST is 0-35 IU/L
The normal value for ALT is 5-35 IU/L
AST and ALT are elevated.
Thank you for the reply. Any reason for concern on the AST and ALT levels?
Without baseline figures you can't really judge if they're elevated or not. You should have another test done.
Also, keep in mind, is she on any type of medication? Any supplements? What's her drug usage like?
No meds,supps or drug use. However, she probably consumes over a case of beer a week.
LMFAO! Alcohol is so much worse for you than steroids...
The Liver Enzymes are not too high, she needs to go back in around 8-12 weeks from now, and get them checked again. If they are still high tell her to back of of the beer for awhile and have them checked again to see if this helps. Although the values are really not bad at all.
Baselines aren't very helpful...
Mcv is a little high. May want to increase folate and b12 in diet. Inj. b12 or some dibencozide sublinguals.
Liver is fine
Thanks for all the input guys. I really appreciate it.
Tell her to stop drinking?
I think it was the late Daniel Duchaine who commented that a beer was equivelant to an Anadrol 50 in respect to liver toxicity.
