Hi, I would like an opinion on my readings so if anyone can share their thoughts, I would greatly appreciate it.
HBS AG, NEG, F HBS AB, 936, F mIU/ml HB CORE AB, NEG, F HEP A AB(TOTAL), POS, * HEP A AB(IGM), NEG
Also my AST is at 37 and ALT at 70.
I'm 33, 6'2.5" and weight 295lbs(currently dieting/exercising).
I had my last set of Twinrx immunizations 2yrs ago which i've explained to my doctor but he still wants me to see a GI.
What do you guys think?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Your blood tests are consistent with prior immunization and protection against hepatitis A and B.
Your mild elevations of liver tests are probably due to fatty liver, which can occur in people who are overweight. As you lose weight, you will see your liver tests normalize.
You are already on the right track...Good luck with the weight loss.
