Test Results

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been diagnosed with NAFLD since 2012 which i think is caused by my underactive thyroid which was diagnosed in 2013 though i've had symptoms of uat since 2011. my last ALT/SGPT serum level was 70 U/L so have had test again few weeks later and it has now gone up to 78. my kidney is reduced the GFR calculated was 57 mL/min last time but gone up to 60 where it usually is. i have had the GGT test this time which receptionist at docs said result was 193. i have a ultrasound scan booked for 19th February for my abdomen to see what's going on. does anyone know what the GGT test should be and what it indicates. thank you.

      i have been having more pain than usual. since before i was diagnosed with uat i have felt really ill, as well as other health problems i have. i have steadily gone downhill until i can hardly do anything. the exhaustion is terrible, i sit in a chair all day. i know something is very wrong and it has been caused by uat because every cell in the body is connected to this. feel as though i'm dying a bit every day.

    Hi Jayne...GGT is normally related to your liver...do you drink alot of alcohol because that can play a big part in it being high...
