High Results

Posted , 2 users are following.


Please can someone give me insight. I had general bloods done and was told my Liver Function Test and was told results were high, ALT 114 and PGT 58.

Can someone please let me know what this means as I am getting very worried.

Thank You

    What did your doctor say, you should organize a follow-up visit? Could be an indication of fatty liver, but could be numerous things or nothing.  Make an appointment to discuss further, normally they will repeat a test in a few months to compare.

      So I called earlier and those were the results I was given by the receptionist, telling me that this sample was high.

      Part of the problem is that I think the doctors so not really care how they should for me since I fell out with their receptionist.

      I called to try and get an appointment to discuss it today, I've been informed I can have an telephone appointment in a week to discuss it, but there is nothing to worry about right now. Apparently I will have more bloods taken in another month.

      I paid for a telephone consultation today with a private doctor, who told me that my ALT result of 114 is high as it should normally be about 40, but that there are so many things it could be, that we would not know until more test are done.

      So I'm not sure why my doctor would delay more tests.

    Easy to say, but try not to worry too much.  As I mentioned in earlier reply, if bloodwork suddenly shows a high result, they will redo the test in 1-3 months (mine was 3 months) but good you only have to wait another month.  If the same result is still high, then I would guess your doc may order an ultrasound of abdomen just to check everything.  I am not in the medical profession but going from my own experiences.
