last year after my annual blood tests, my ALT was fluctuating from 38, 80,68,29 so all HEP tests were done, Negative thanksfully. since last reading was 29, no more tests were done. this forum has helped me tremendoulsy with all warm inputs from all the members that i have talked to. Still grateful for that.
then this year i switched insurance carrier, and again ALT was fluctuating from 46,40,46 (6 months span and max range is 32).
my new doctor still wants to monitor and discuss with me on my schedule appt on 6/20. Shall i push for a liver ultrasound or see a specialist? she keeps on saying it's mildly elevated and shall be monitored, but doesn't seem concern. Since this is 2nd occurrence, i want more testing to be done.
I'm only 38, not overweight but have elevated chlostereol and borderline diabetic. Given that my diet hasn't been all good lately, can it be related to that? Shall i listen to her and wait or push for more extensive testing now? i'm worried of the fluctuating trend. Are the numbers concerning?
