I just received lab results that came back positive for hep a. I m scared to death and panicked. Is there a drug that can cure this? What are the symptoms? I was diagnosed with RA in 2001 and the labs that revealed I had hep c also showed the RA factor had jumped to 132.
I have had elevating liver enzimes for past 2-3 months, my liver is enlarged. The Dr. said he could feel that it was enlarged plus an Ultra Sound confirmed it was enlarged an excessively fatty. I have a lot of pain, and blood tests just came back with hepatitis A Ab, TOTAL. REACTIVE The only other abnormal results was IMMUNOGLOBULIN A 4 L . My PHENOTYPE IS PI*MM. What does this indicate? I do not drink at all, try and eat healthy, am happily married, and 70.9 years of age. I feel fatigued and am in pain most the time. I had a completely normal ultra sound 16 months ago.
I tested reactive for Hepatitis A in a total ab blood test. Is hepatitis spread solely through fecal contact or can it transmit through other routes such as sperm or vaginal fluids? Also, is it dangerous to drink alcohol within the first 6 months of contracting hep a even if asymptomatic while doing so?
My son woke up Saturday and his urine had blood in it, the color of koolaid, his gums were bleeding and he had blood spots and bruises allover his legs. He went to the Emergency Room and they took blood test. His platelets were at 3000 so they admitted him to I C U. The gave him 10 units of platelets and steroids, and it raised him to 12000 by that evening. They took ultra sound of his spleen and kidney and it looked ok. They tested him for HIV and Hepatitis C and he tested negative. They then on Sunday gave him 7 more units of platelets and more steroids. By Monday morning his platelet count was 3800. They wanted to send him home, but he refused , telling them he wanted to know what was wrong with him. They didn't do anything for him till 6 pm Monday night , they put him on more steroids and said they would check him in the morning. Should I get a second opinion and take him to another hospital?
