I have had elevating liver enzimes for past 2-3 months, my liver is enlarged. The Dr. said he could feel that it was enlarged plus an Ultra Sound confirmed it was enlarged an excessively fatty. I have a lot of pain, and blood tests just came back with hepatitis A Ab, TOTAL. REACTIVE The only other abnormal results was IMMUNOGLOBULIN A 4 L . My PHENOTYPE IS PI*MM. What does this indicate? I do not drink at all, try and eat healthy, am happily married, and 70.9 years of age. I feel fatigued and am in pain most the time. I had a completely normal ultra sound 16 months ago.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
these findings are typical for hepatitis a infection and it shouldnt worry you. it should recover when virus is eliminated from your body. all this is sign of ystemic infection and liver inflammation. you should treat it regularly,avoid hepatotoxic agents and alcohol,rest and follow hepatic diet. also some medicines may be prescribed for liver protection so consult your doctor about it.
Wish you good health. Regards
