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

My father has abnormally high monocytes with the blood draw under the CECW-DIFF Under the Differntial Morhtology his MPV was also abnormaly high the CMV revealed his ALT/SGTP and AST/SGOT to be high. 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?

I have been having symptoms that no one can diagnose for about two years. Assuming no rare disease, and no microbes or parisites, i believe 99.99 of all of my symptoms are related to my vagus nerve and digestive system as a whole!Now with that being said about on oct 14th i went out for some beers to watch a football game. I hardly ever drink though!!!!That night and next day i had all over body itching and have had it ever since!!About two days earlier my throat was hurting and i remember two days before that my teacher told me she was sick!!I have had the sore throat ever since then(about seven weeks), then out of nowhere on about NOV 8th my joints and muscles and bones have become very tender and ache, in particular my hands and wrists and knees and hips.!!!I have a high GGT liver enzyme with all other liver numbers normal, Low vitamin D in the past and now i found out that my Autonuclear test was positive when i asked to be tested for lupus!!!They did other autoimmune tests and they were normal!!!Never had any throat cultures done!!My doctor thinks that my throat hurts because of heartburn at night!!I am very concerned about the joint pain and the sore throat and NON stop itching that is NOW waking me up at night as of last night!!PLEASE HELP as the Veterans ADMIN sucks!!!!!
