What do these SGOT and SGPT levels while on Isotretinoin indicate?
Before this i was taking acne treatment by using isotretinoin but had been off it for 1.5 months now.
Widal test was done. But i am not able to intrepet it.
What does this suggest ?
Please provide more information and upload reports
welcome to health care magic.
I have gone through your question very diligently and I really appreciate your concerns
Looking at your description mild grade fever( 99 to 99.5) with elevated liver enzymes (SGOT and SGPT) might be related to liver infection or inflammation like hepatitis or other related condition
To start with, I would like further information for better assessment of the condition like
If possible upload a scan copy of all the reports such as CBC, Widal test
How's your appetite?
Are you having cough or have you lost weight recently?
Are you passing yellowish color urine?
Since how long you have taken isotretinoin?
Please upload me Widal test report, I will interpret it for you.
Meanwhile have plenty of fluids especially glucose water and maintain good hygiene.
Please write back to me with these details so that I will be able to guide you more accurately.
waiting for your reply
I have no other symptom at all. No urine issues. It's transparent and sometimes yellow as usual. No weight loss or appetite loss. I have attached some reports. Kindly review.
Elevated liver enzymes might be related to prolonged use of isotretinoin
welcome again and thanks for all the details
I am sorry I didn't get your Widal test and other reports except CBC and ESR.
Isotretinoin may increase the liver enzymes level in blood when it is taken for prolonged duration.
Since body temperature till 99 is normal, slight variations in temperature depends upon number of factors.
So you need not to worry as you have already stopped isotretinoin, it will slowly come down to normal.
So please upload your rest of the reports so that I will be able to guide you better.
