Blood test results: elevated liver, kidney and prostate

Thanks for reading, I am not sure where to post this question.

My husband has had urinary problems and general feeling unwell. He went to the doctors with weak urine flow, getting up in the night to pee, tiredness, reduced libido, reduced appetite, constipation, headaches and skin rashes.

They did blood tests and these came back as elevated for liver, kidney and prostate. These tests were repeated and came back the same. The prosate level should be 3 and it was 6.

On a rectal examination the prostate was felt to be enlarged, but the doctor felt it wasn't lumpy. He has been referred for bladder and kidney scans and to see several specialists.

My husband is 50.

I understand what the prostate levels could indicate, but why would the liver and kidney ones also be elevated?

My husband has had the same results. I was wondering what your husbands diagnosis was. I am new to this site and could not find anyone who responded to this thread ---or how to find them. I'm interested especially because he has also had the skin rash along with the elevated levels. thanks for your time. Hope your husband is fine.

Re: Blood test results: elevated liver, kidney and prostate

He was fine in the end thank you. It was all down to be dehydrated! At the time he was doing a lot of long distance walking, practising for a big 80k event. He had to go and see a urologist, who himself was a long distance cyclist. He explained that this happens in men who train a lot. He said to give it another 3-4 months before he was tested again (blood) as it would take that long to settle down and sure enough it did.
Hope your husband is ok too.

Thanks for your response. My husband was diagnosed with fifth disease he had been sick for around two weeks taking a lot of pain relievers. That is what increased his liver and kidney levels. The prostrate level was found at annual physical two weeks prior to sickness. Thanks for your speedy reply it was nice seeing your husbands symptoms were not serious too.
