CBC (INCLUDES DIFF/PLT) One year ago I had liver panel test run and I had similar results. I was taking medicine than that damages the liver. I was an extremely heavy drinker but have stopped now for the past four years. Can inject able steroids cause these results to rise? I use trinaxyl 150 and cypionate 250 2CC a week. I have been using this for 1 1/2 years with four to six week breaks every four or five months.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

Thanks for writing.

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad. I have read your question completely, i understand your concern and will try to help you in best way possible.

These values are not very deranged but yes they shouldn't be going in the increasing trend . It's a great thing thay you have quit drinking i hope these values have proved to some extent though.

Trunaxyl is said to derange liver functions but there is no scientific evidence of it so i will call it a myth. But Cypionate is found to increase liver lab values specially the AST rate though (in 0.1% of patients) Now either you are among those 0.1% or there is some other reason of increased labs.

Did you get your unltrasound abdomen done.lately? may be that's damage speaking which was caused by your alcohol intake when you used to drink.

I would suggest you to take liver healthy diets like liver friendly amino acids, fish oils and avoid drugs which affect liver like cholesterole lowering durgs etc and then repeat the test in two months , if values are in falling trend then you are going good.

I hope this answered your question, a
if you have more please feel free to ask.

Regrads.

I was directed by a doctor to use TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE OINTMENT 0.1% on a dry scally area on my ankle and it basically burnt the area such that is leaking fluid like a burn. The doc then switched me just Vaseline but the area still weeps and is sore. I do have a call into the dr.

Hi Last year I had to arrest a Somalian and I thought I got bit by fleas. I have six raised red spots that itch incessantly. I got eczema as a result and have been using betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% (eleuphrat) This cleared the eczema but the original six spot remain and itch even when scratched till bleeding. The cream helps but does not get rid of them. I have no allergies.

I am 65 yrs. of age and both my cholesterol and triglycerides are elevated. Total cholesterol is 257. Triglycerides are 158. HDL cholesterol is 55. The dr. threw a sample of Crestor to me and gave me a prescription as well. I threw the Crestor in the trash. Started taking Cholestoff *Complete* which is for both dietary and genetic high cholesterol (made from plants) and am suppose to take two twice daily before meals. Also am eating 3/4 cup of Quaker Oat Meal w/ cinnamon sprinkled heavily over it each day and am on a low fat diet. Have been told that niacin also helps bring down cholesterol and am wondering if you would recommend taking it. I also take fish oil daily. Am interested in natural products for lowering it. Haven t been exercising appropriately and need to do that. Both of my parents had normal cholesterol levels but my grandmother passed due to a stroke. What is your recommendation and am I on the correct path? I am totally against statins due to their many side effects. I take medication for thyroid which is Synthroid and have no other major medical problems. Thank you very much
