Hope you are all well as can be.
I have had a copy of the letter from my consultant and need help understanding the readings.
My readings have gone from abnormal to deranged!
Tests done on 16/04/2015
ALT 828 marginally better than original reading on 5/3/2015
Total bilirubin 36
MRCP liver is suggestive of early cirrhosis and associated splenomegaly.
I have also got a positive ANA titre of 1 .2560
Ferritin levels are quite raised but genetic test for mutant gene C282Y is negative( though I have just found out my father has been having blood removed over the years as it is 'too rich' he says!)
I am scoring on the autoimmune hepatitis score despite no serum immunoglobulin apparently. So it is possible I may have the condition. I find it all a bit overwhelming having gone from fine to this.
I have also had H-pylori and just completed a 2 week course of antibiotics and wonder if this has had an effect on LFT's as I was suffering with it for at least 6 weeks before diagnosed though guess they would take that into account.
A liver biopsy has now been requested.
What are the normal LFT levels? When I google it makes no sense to me at all.
