I am a 31 year old white male who have been immunised for Hepatitis A and B with no serious current health issues. I never drink alcohol, I am a smoker of around 1 pack per day. Current meds:
-- 1000 mg Ibuprofen daily due to nerve damage caused by 4 L5-S1 discectomies.
-- 4 days prior to blood work I completed took a 7 day course of 2000 mg daily dose of Amoxicillin for a sinus infection. (FYI forgot to tell Dr about this one)
Recently had a series of routing tests in which my ALT levels were elevated to 93, AST was normal, Cholestrol elevated to 207.
Dr. did not seem concerned with the ALT being elevated and in fact did not order a Hepatitis panel, CT scan or anything of that nature. All he asked me was to stay away from Acetamenophen and come in for a follow up appointment on June 13th !!
Well, I am freaking out a whole lot more then my Dr. is !!
What do you guys think ? Is my DR being way too laid back about this ? I am so worried, I have been reading up on all the possiblities of liver desease, cancer, scarring and so forth
