Hello, I'm writing here for help as I'm totally desperate now, it's been 15 years almost that I discovered abnormal liver enzymes values, the 2 most recent abnormalities are summarized below; nobody has been able to provide a diagnosis or direct me to more specific tests other than the
standard ecography + blood exams.
Age: 28, Male, 76.5 Kg, Caucasian
Exam date 2011/12
- GGT [GammaGT] 287 UI/L
- ASAT [AST]45 UI/l [4 days back the value was 25 UI/L]
- ALAT [ALT] 62 UI/l [4 days back the value was 50 UI/L]
- Hepatitis B/C negative [lack of immunity for B, vaccinated in 2015 - Twinrix A+B]
- eosinophilic leukocyte count 427/mm3
All other values are within norm, including TSH (Thyroid hormone), Creatinine clearance 9,2mg/L
Exam date 2015/7
- GGT [GammaGT]299 UI/L
- ASAT [AST] 30 UI/L [Seems within normal ranges]
- ALAT [ALT] 55 UI/L
Every time I go to the doctor (they change as I relocated countries a few times) they assume it's just bad diet + alcohol consumption, prescribe a healthy diet without alcohol etc.
I did an experiment and followed their advice a few years back, so absolutely no alcohol and a balanced diet, the results were exactly the same, high GGT + ALT,
based on this I did an ecography of the liver in 2011, and it was perfect, the doctor didn't notice anything unusual, all sugests a good morphology liver,
no fat accumulation etc, as a remark he found the kidneys to have a "horseshoe" layout?
I did another ecography recently (1 week ago), and the doctor was pointing out that it can be a fatty liver (it was not the case in 2011), so either this is
a consequence of my "illness" or probably because my diet wasn't good for the past year (probably the latter)
Anyway I got occasional abdominal pain with what seems to be moderate chronic fatigue (lasting for the last 10 years or more), sometimes
I have problems with a bloated belly. Somewhere within the past 2/3 years I gained almost 8 Kg of weight (all seem to stick to the abdomen as a layer of extra fat), so could be the reason for a fatty liver?
Any help will be much appreciated, I'm also available to consider a private consultation if required.
