Hello, I am new here. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light.
My husband is 39, he doesn't drink or smoke and although he has been a poor eater (seems to go all day in work barely eating saying he is too busy) when he does eat at home it is a health meal at night. For years he ate poorly, he would live off fruit in work and come home shaking like he had low blood sugar, he would be bright white and sleep as soon as he ate his evening meal. Earlier this year it's what prompted me to get him to the GP, thinking they would just test diabetes and tell him off for his poor eating. He is 5ft 10 and about 15 stone so needs to lose a little weight. Weirdly he never loses weight despite his lack of food. Recently he has sorted his eating out as I have made sure he eats in work and before.
Anyway our GP ran big standard tests to give him an MOT as he's not one for the doctors. They were all clear but his ALT level was 51, the GP called him in to discuss it and quizzed him on his drinking and eating. They repeated the tests again a month later and the ALT had gone up to 53. All over results were normal. So they referred him for an ultrasound of his gallbladder, all ok but report said enlarged liver. His GP requested more detailed bloods and these were the ones that came back high or low
Serum ALT - 59 (<41)
Serum gamma GT level 63 (11-55)
Serum triglycerides 2.1 (<2.0) Total cholesterol 5.6
Serum caeruloplasmin 0.17 (0.20-0.60)
Serum A1 - antitrypain 1.07 (1.10-2.10)
All his other bloods were clear. Coleliac clear, hepititis clear, FBC, ferritin etc...
He has been called back to see the GP and they are seeing him on the 16th. This has been going on since the spring and we are still none the wiser. All they have said is it could be early stage liver disease. Can anyone shed any light as to why this would happen? his doctors don't explain, and he never asks much he is so laid back. He goes to the GP gets blood forms and goes away none the wiser as to why.
