Brief Answer:
Elastography is needed

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can understand your concern here.

I have worked through your reports.

Based on your reports, you possibly seem to possess moderately severe hepatitis.

Could possibly relate to underlying alcoholism.

The phase of liver disease cannot be anticipated on these tests alone.

For accurate staging and possibility of reversal, I advise you to take up another test known as Elastography.

This can accurately predict the risk and severity of cirrhosis.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Confirmed liver Cirrhosis.Update me INR test.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can understand your concerns though.

Ultrasound is a very investigation to diagnose liver cirrhosis.

Dilated portal vein and mild splenomegaly indicate the early development of portal vein hypertension.

The severity of Liver Cirrhosis can be calculated through 4 blood parameters like Albumin, Bilirubin, Creatinine and INR(international normalised ratio). This is calculated by the MELD score system. This can indirectly assess the need for liver transplantation.

Hence, I advise you get an INR by blood sample for the calculation of MELD score.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.

Hello. I am a final year medical student. My mum had her BP taken last week and it was 180/130. She bought a blood pressure monitor yesterday and it has been reading 220/150 relatively consistently since (normal BP readings on rest of family), she has no headache/visual problems. She has rang the doctors-on-call and the nurse told her to wait and see her normal GP in working hours (this means waiting 48 hours). I am worried about malignant hypertension - should I persuade her to go to A&E?

I am a 23 year old man with high blood pressure and a high heart rate. I have for the last two years been suffering from frequent urination and very loose stool. I usually have to go once in 45 mins. I recently have lost the sensation of having to urinate alltogether. It is really scaring me. I have infrequent abdominal pain in front of my left hip and lower back pain too. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 350lbs. I have had my blood tested for diabetes and it came back with great blood sugar. I have also had my prostate looked at and it looks fine. My kidneys were checked and they were fine too. The doctors in a hospital and my personal doctor basically said we don t know whats wrong with you . This is very scary and uncomfortable. I can t work anymore because of this and it s gotten so bad that I can t even leave my own home sometimes because I have to go to the bathroom so much... When I go, it s also a good amount of each, not just a dribble. I don t know what else to do but I really would like some help... I don t know where to turn or what to do anymore.
