Elevated ALT results

I had blood work done this week. I requested it because my husband's cholesterol and other levels are high, and it had been about 4 years since I had blood work done. My ALT level is 63, and normal is between 5-49. I have not talked to my GP since I got the results. I had some stomach issues about 3-4 years ago and an MRI showed a spot on my liver that my gastroenterologist said not to worry about. I have not been feeling well lately, food seems to make me ill and I have had some pain and achiness in my right side where my liver is. I had tests done on my gallbladder 3 years ago and it showed sludge, but no stones. My BUN was also high, with a level of 23. My hematocrit was 46.2. Cholesterol is 157, with my triglercyrides at 42, HDL is 52 and LDL is 97. vLDL is 8.4 and my LDL/HDL ratio is 1.9. My EOS% is also high at 5.2, but I have eczema which could explain that.

I go to see my GYN doctor on Tuesday and I am going to take these test results to him to see what he has to say. I trust him. I had a hysterectomy in December 2005 but still have my ovaries. I also had bladder surgery done at the same time (bladder sling and my trigone burned for trigonitis). I have had several bladder/kidney infections since surgery and thought I had another one last week but my urologist said I don't.

What should I do now?

Re: Elevated ALT results

I would see or call the doctor who did the blood tests. Tell them about your other symptoms. See what they say, then cross check with what your OB says. This could be troubling so have one of the doctors on top of this immediately. Good Luck!
