Im writing to get some information and reassurance, because I'm a bit scared.
2 weeks ago I got my blood test results from the GP. It says that my ALT is elevated.
ALT = 63 iu/L (normal 0-33)
Other liver tests are within normal range:
Total protein = 72 g/L (66-87)
Albumin = 48 g/L (35-50)
Total bilirubin 6 umol/L (0 - 21)
Serum alkaline phosphatase 71 iu/L (35-129)
I don't have diabetes, my cholesterol is fine, as well as my complete blood count, kidney tests, ferritin, ESR tests. I do have thyroid antibodies elevated which indicate autoimmune thyroid condition (Hashimoto), but my thyroid still works fine and thyroid hormones withon normal range.
As far as I understand my GP is not terribly concerned, but she referred me for the following tests: autoantibodies liver profile, gamma globulins GGT, ALT, ferritin, Hep B, Hep C
I have two small children (3 years and 14 months). I dont know if I had my liver tests done during pregnancies, but my last reading according GP records for ALT is 27 iu/L
Is AIH a possibility? Im sure its not hep B cause I was tested during pregnancy. And I didnt really have any chances to get Hep C.
I'm concerned and scared, because I never had any abnormal tests. I just turned 30 and it seems like I slowly losing control over my health.
Thank you in advance for help
