Brief Answer:
follow up .

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear

Welcome for follow up .

* Antiendomysial antibody IgG and tissue transgluaminase IgA are specific
markers for the Celiac disease of the intestine (gluten sensitive enteropathy )

* As per the narrated symptoms and USG findings , your case is not typical of
that , but your physician may have evaluated the need of the relevant
investigations keeping other parameters in the mind .

* For investigations , preparation is only to be remain empty stomach has to go
without taking anything by mouth for 10 hours .
Say patient can consume last liquids orally at 10 PM , then nil by mouth
and give blood , urine sample at 8 AM .

Hope this will help her for sure .
Welcome for any further assistance .

follow up .

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX ,

Welcome for the follow up .

1. LFT is not covering everything needed for our case ( this includes only serum
bilirubin , SGPT , SGOT , albumin globulin ratio , HBSAg ) .
You have to undertake CBC , ESR , serum widal , FBS , urine microscopy
along with LFT .

2. Can consult in follow up with reports or Consultant Gastroenterology .

Always happy to assist you anytime .

Brief Answer:
you can`t stamp purely jaundice , it may be early sign/secondary to other .

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Welcome for follow up with LFT reports .

* There is SGPT elevation , with negligible changes of SGOT and direct bilirubin .
This may be indicative of very early jaundice or secondary to some bacterial
or viral infection in the abdomen giving these changes .
