Hi Nidha. Thanks for using health care magic.

Elevation of SGOT/SGPT in your case can be explained b either of the two possibilities.

1. Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis - Accumulation of fat in liver which can occur in many people to varied cause - Overweight, certain medications, Diabetes, Unknown Cause.
Best treatment for this is regular exercise and weight loss.

2. Autoimmune Hepatitis - As our ANA is weakly positive (Seen in Autoimmune Conditions)

I recommend you to get your ANA test reconfirmed. If its positive you need further detailed evaluation to find out if you have any autoimmune disease.
Hope this clears our query.

Do get back if you have any further doubts

Thanks and Regards,
Dr Kiran

He has gpne from family dr. to Hemetologoist now to Pathologist with a Bone Marrow Test due tm at 9am. All signs to me point to possible Fatty Liver. But I am not a Doctor. Why are they doing a Bone marrow and not a CT or MRI of the liver first? What are the other possiblilities that would lead them in the directioon of Bone Marrow before simple CT or MRI?

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?
