For the past month or so I've been having bad diarrhea. I went to the doctor and got my blood drawn. Some levels were elevated (I don't know the exact numbers) so he asked me to get my blood drawn once a week.
The last report had even higher numbers than the previous 2 tests. Here are some of the numbers marked as "out of range" (normal range in parentheses):
immunoglobulin a, 471 (81-463)
protein total, 8.71 (6.2-8.3)
Globulin 5.0 (2.2-3.9)
Albumin/glob. ratio .7 (1.0-2.1)
Bilirubin, total 3.7 (.2-1.2)
alkaline phosphatase 803 (33-115)
AST 497 (10-30)
ALT 397 (6-40)
Vitamin D, 25 OH 21 (30-100)
GGT 563 ( 3-40)
Ferritin 421 (10-154)
I can't get the ultrasound and GI visit my doctor requested until next Tuesday. I'm currently away at school, it's finals week, and I have 2 jobs -- there really isn't a way I can fit it in until I get home. Plus, I really want to go with my mom !
Anyways, my question is does anyone have any ideas, stories, hypotheses, etc as to what this could be? This health issue is just gnawing at the back of my brain while I'm trying to study!!
Any type of ideas are GREATLY appreciated.
Oh, also, the only "symptom" I have is diarrhea, but it's not every day. It seems worse if I eat something high in fat -- which I rarely eat. My roommate baked cookies yesterday, we had (quite) a few last night and I woke up with really bad diarrhea.
Some more info: I'm 21, female, 5'5", 165 lbs, suffered from an eating disorder 4-5 years ago
Again, thank you !
