Hello XXXXXXX
Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, your blood report shows
-     Normal alkaline phospahatase.
-     Bilirubin – normal.
-     SGOT – normal.
-     Albumin - normal
-     Globulin – normal.
-     Albumin : globulin ratio – within normal limit.
-     High levels of SGPT and Gamma glutamyl transferase.
-     
High levels of serum SGPT and GGT both seen in obstructive conditions and acute alcoholic hepatitis.

So, you have to do the following
1.     Take rest.
2.     Take good, nutritious diet with mild oil and fat.
3.     If you are alcoholic then stop it immediately.
4.     Avoid taking fast foods.
5.     Take some fresh fruits.
6.     You have to take a liver protective drug of ursodeoxycholic acid group .
7.     You have to undergo ultrasound scan of whole abdomen.
8.     Consult with a gastroenterologist for a thorough clinical examination, ordering appropriate investigation and for further management.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hello,
Thank you for writing back.

After a thorough checking, the following abnormalities are seen to be present except those mentioned already -
1. Cholesterol total is increased.
2. LDL cholesterol is increased.
3. Triglyceride is highly increased.
4. TC / HDL cholesterol is increased.
5. TSH is very much increased.
6. Mildly high lymphocytes are present.

About the lipid profile abnormality, you have to do
1. Daily minimum 30 minutes walking.
2. Low fat diet.
3. You have to take atorvastatin and fenofibrate group of drug to lower this level. Consult with your treating doctor for dosing and frequency.

About the thyroid abnormality , you have to consult an endocrinologist for starting thyroxine hormone supplements as early as possible. A test of anti TPO antibody should be done , followed by an ultrasound scan of the thyroid gland to rule out any other possibility.

For the increased lymphocytes, you have to do a repeat test to search for presence of any abnormal cells in blood.

Regards.

I was recently prescribed meloxicam, which I am under the impression that it is a anti-inflammatory ? Does it have any interaction with the other medications I am prescribed? -Or- is any of the following not recommended together? Cymbalta, Concerta, Metroprolol, Hydrochlorothiazide, Tomoxifen, Cyclobenzaprene, Diclofenac, Fenofibrate, Xanax, Norco, Zolpidem (occasionally for when needed on controlled substances, except the psychiatric drugs which are 1x per day) A couple more questions; Is it ok to take alkaseltzer daily? I recently had my colonoscopy. Which came out clear, but the last testing shown there was blood in my stool. Last question, I use denture adhesive, which my denture won t stay in unless I use the fixodent or polident. Is there a brand that doesn t have any adverse reaction, as I heard the denture adhesives have an ingredient that is not good if you swallow it, which, I do, as the adhesive starts to leak. Thank you for your recommendations
