    ALT/AST and Lipase

    Hi, writing about my wife. She grew up in a poor area and when she was a girl had Hepatitis A. When she was a teen she had a food borne illness that made her lose consciousness.

    In 2006 (age 40) she developed serious acute pancreatitis but was not hospitalized.
    She gets labs every now and then. Her last results were as follows:

    AST 36 U/L
    ALT 14 U/L
    Lipase 97 U/L (for this lab upper normal is 90).

    The AST/ALT are not abnormal per se but the ratio is messed up (2.6). She is not alcoholic but does drink in moderation. That Lipase level concerns me. She has occasional upper right quandrant pain after eating. Her belly tends to swell at night after dinner.

    Overall she is pretty vigorous otherwise. She may have gall stones but we never investigated. Her bile duct is also a little weird. In 2015 she had an MRCP and they found "Focal ectasia of the common bile duct measuring up to 7 mm which is slightly prominent for the patient's age."
