Hi. I m a 43 year old male alcoholic. My doctor has been working with me on this problem and the latest test results concerning my liver is AST 125 and ALT 220. My doctor, of course, said I need to stop the drinking. But he also said he didn t suspect any permanent liver damage yet but ordered and ultra-sound that I will schedule soon.My question: How high might the above levels get before permanent damage results? Thanks!

My 17 month old daughter has been diagnosed with Pearson s Syndrome. Perhaps I donot need to explain this to you, but to date O s bowel movements are loose yellow with white seeds in it. We were just hospitalized for 2 weeks and they are saying it was Gastro but one of the interns said that nothing grew. Could you tell me what is happening?? I know the start of liver failure is what I have been told and read... please help, I really don t want to loose her, not yet. A little girl from Ohio just passed away with the same disease, she was 2. After talking to her mom, O is having so many of the same symptoms that E did. Is there anything I can do that I am not doing already. She is taking Carnitine and Menadione. She was on a vitamin cocktail of thiamine, B12, co-enzyme Q10, riboflavin and something else but I forget at the moment. Blood transfusions every 4 weeks as hgb depletes. Platelets as off late as they are always at 20- 30, neutrophils.01, I can go on, but will it help in an answer or not... look forward to your input. We have a sight with facebook, Pearson Syndrome Network. I am very fortunate to know someone else with this disease as it is very rare. CK

My brother-in-law has been having black stool and blood for a few weeks now. He feels very weak by times. He went to a hospital and they did keep him in did an xray thought they could see where the blood was coming from. So they gave him an intravenous trasfusion. They then did an upper scope which showed nothing so they were going to send him home until they checked his blood again and found it to be around 80 and decided to give him another transfusion but after that when they checked his blood again it had dropped to 72 so they kept him in but they told him not to worry it was probably just that the saline had diluted the blood to much and proceeded to give him more transfusions. Does this make any sense? Please reply
