Question: Hi , this is my 32weeks running (LMP 12.11.2014).
I had all over itching from last 3days so I called my gynecologist .. she asked me to go for LFT test w/o food ..and the result was (AST - 211, ALT -354, ALP 298) then she prescribed me Sorbiline Syrup (2spoons *3) for one week..
Now my concern is -
1. I got to know from my sis in law who is PhD in pharmacy .. that dis syrup could harm the fetal .. so generally doc does not prescribe this to pregnant woman .. is it true?
2. When I shared this issue with gynecologist she said u can take Udiliv 150( twice in a day) .. y she changed it by saying .. there is no diff. Either u take syrup or udiliv ..I m really concerned and confused .. Pls help
3. My weight is not much increased throughout only 2kg ... when I told as concern to my gynecologist she prescribed me Amino fit syrup once in a day wo usg in 30weeks is it safe to take...I mean is there is side effects also..

I m really worried

Brief Answer:
You can take udiliv tablet.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I can understand your concerns.
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I have gone through your history and investigation reports and it shows that your liver enzymes are raised.
As such cholestasis is common during pregnancy but if you are having itching and raised liver enzymes you should take udiliv tablet for it.
As such no medicine is safe during pregnancy but in your case it is important to take udilive tablet for healthy liver.
So please take it without hesitation but you can stop sorbitol syp.
You can take amino fit it is amino acid( simple protein) which is helpful in baby growth and development.
There is no harm in taking it.
Simultaneously you should take iron, calcium, healthy and nutritious diet with lots of vegetables and fruits, drink a lot of water.
If your baby is fine in ultrasound do not worry about your weight.
Hope it is useful, feel free to ask more questions.
Good luck and enjoy a happy and safe motherhood.

Thanks doc ur revert is really helpful .. but I still not got my answer of first point..

Also..
In diet should I avoid taking oily food as well egg, turmeric, banana and other yellow eatables... bcs in future it could help my baby to prevent from jaundice.

Is my LFT report could force my gyn for preterm delivery ..

Brief Answer:
No there is as such no need of preterm delivery.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

You are most welcome.
Yes, your sister opinion is right, sorbilin is not safe during pregnancy.
It is pregnancy category D drug and is harmful for foetus.
As such sorbilin and udiliv are different drugs but can be used in liver dysfunction but in my opinion udiliv is drug of choice during pregnancy.
Yes, you should avoid these type of food because it may deranged liver enzymes.
No,if your baby is fine than there is no need of premature delivery.
Hope it is useful, feel free to ask more questions.
Good luck.
