I'm_Jane_Doe, hi and welcome to the forum. Boy I don't blame you for being upset and confused. Lab results are really tricky sometimes. We'll try to make some sense out of it all OK? First of all Non Reactive means "NEGATIVE" results. However you do have elevated enzymes like your ALT. Normal range for women is 5 IU/L to 45 IU/L with the average being 19 IU/L. Yours was 64. Several factors can cause an elevation in the enzymes and in your case it is possible that it could be your medication. Seeing the gastroenterologist is the best option for you as he/she is a specialist in this field. They will probably retest your blood to verify the original results so don't be surprised. I hope this helps a little.
Hi Shelly this is for you. I am just frustrated. Jerry's bood done on 2/23 when he was in the hospital Hemoglobin 9.7 hematocrit 27.7 Then blood work done on 2/27 at Vanderbilt was Hematocrit 26 and Hemoglobin 8.8. That tells me its going down. We go tomorrow to have blood work repeated. He's really dragging butt!!! I knew somethin didn't seem right. It just this disease is so hard to keep up with. They did test his stool in the hosptial. If he is loosing blood where is it going. He's not vomiting blood. He doesn't have bloody noses. Where would it go. As usual I'm scared to death!! Do you an opinion.
Thank you JoAnn
