Could you please suggest a reference chart for liver enzyme levels?
Where can I find a chart of liver enzyme test results that show what s high? Like if its this high you need a liver transplant or you can get on medication to lower levels? My fiancé has Acute Liver Failure and I am trying to get this information for him. He has Hepatitis C from drinking, He has stopped but I think it s too late but we need more information on this. I asked my family Doctor and the lab tech at the local hospital and they said they don t know.
Thanks for asking query on HCM. One cant take a big decision like liver transplant just based on few blood tests and there cant be a one cutoff level. One has to see patient in total, his condition, complications, etiology along with lab reports. Usually we use some of the derived scores or criteria for prognosis and treatment purposes like - MELD score(for CLD), King's college criteria for ALF. Please meet your liver specialist doctor and get evaluated and then he will guide you regarding further managment.
