Hi,

This is my first post, please excuse my mistakes.

Couple of days ago, early morning, I felt very nauseous suddenly, sat down on bed and passed out briefly falling on the floor.

Was taken to the hospital where tests were performed; urine, blood sugar and blood pressure was normal. But the liver enzymes were elevated. The doctor asked me to come next week to repeat the blood tests, but I am very worried as the AST, ALT and ALP levels are significantly high.

AST- 110

ALP- 238

ALT- 191

I get stomachaches and my lower left back, hips and legs hurt.  I don’t drink alcohol or smoke, not on any medication either. 

I breastfeed my one-year-old child and have four more children.

I am 36 years old, and my mum has diabetes

What could it be? Am extremely worried. Please share your thoughts.

Thank you

Hello Shamiml.
I just wanted to welcome you to HealingWell. My only thoughts are to try and not to worry too much. I know it's hard to do, but stressing out over it will not help you. Just go back to take the tests over like your doctor wants you too. If and when he finds anything that you need to worry about he will let you know. Just keep yourself busy in the mean time to try and keep your self busy.
I'm doing the same thing now with a test that I had to take last Friday. I know I will probably get a call to do additional testing (I always do.) But I am not going to worry about it until I know that I have something to worry about.

Take care and good luck.

Hi Shamumu and Welcome to the forum.

Pink Granda is right that you should try not to worry too much, although we all know that is very hard, until you have more information. There are really too many possibilities. such as taking over the counter medications to other medical conditions, that could possibly affect your liver enzymes. Guessing at this point would be not helpful. Hopefully you doctor will quicken this process for you so you can have some answers. Please keep us posted.

Thankyou dansbrother.

Feeling positive now.

I also do not do drugs, or have a tattoo, as far as I remember, my Hep B was nagative when I was tested during my last pregnancy.

Thanks again.

Dear Sham,

For a person with Hep C your liver enzymes are not bad at all.
I am elated when my LFTs are in the 100s. I've had them in the thousands. I'd say not to worry and I'd guess your passing out is unrelated.

Bes, Cary

Thankyou for all your replies.

Had blood test again. ALP has elevated even more, while ALT was a bit lower.

Doctor seemed concerned, asked me to repeat the test again in few weeks.

Had a Scan done too. No Kidney stone and the Liver looked fine.

What can this mean?

I am so sorry that you didn't get the answers that you wanted during this last series of tests. I know in my case it took a long time for me to get properly diagnosised and treatment started (I have AIH). Apparrently there are so many things that can affect the liver and its enzymes that without a specific factors being present it is just too difficult for them to diagnosis. I know you are probably getting frustrated at this point that you can not get the answers that you need. I know I certainly did and was fearful too of what it all was meaning. However looking backward I am glad things were so fully explored rather than guessing and the wrong treatments being given. I hope how soon that they can give you some answers. Just wanted you to know I understand your frustrations.
