    Raised ALT again...

    Hi everyone. I'll give you a quick rundown if I may:

    31 yr old male, terrible fatigue, malaise, nausea, CFS-like symptoms for 6 years.
    Liver panel showed raised ALT (c.100) about 2 years ago, diagnosed as fatty liver (NASH) after ultrasound.
    One year ago acute pancreatitis which led to gall bladder removal.
    Liver panel back to normal.
    Having abdominal pain again (central/chest) as well as worsening of CFS-like symptoms. New symptoms include bad skin infection on face, fungal infection of armpits and eczema on hands.
    Liver panel last week showed ALT c.60.
    I'm 5'9", just under 13 stone so not terribly overweight (BMI is just under 27).
    Also, my hair's quite thin.

    Is it worth asking for a test for haemochromatosis?

    thunderstruck--My husband was DX'ed with Hep-C. When in fact he had Hereditary Hemochromatosis. This was discover at the age of 53. I think that you are young to have symptoms of HH as you describe. It is different for everyone. I have heard that it shows up in later years as symptoms. I think anything is worth discussing with your PCP. FLFLOWERGIRL
