Hi.i have a 5yr old daughter who has been vomiting on and off for the past 7/8 wks. She gets very larthagic at times and complains of being tired and sleepy and also feels sick. She has no blood in the urine or stools and none in the vomit. Her liver test showed levels were raised to 133. No temperature but she does have a dry cough.i am just getting worried as im not sure how serious this is.

Hello dear, welcome to HCM forum.

This may be a feature of viral hepatitis. Kindly get her examined with your doctor. Severe lassitude, nausea, vomiting, anorexia etc are features suggestive of viral hepatitis. This may be associated with yellowish discoloration of eyes and urine.

If confirmed, this will need supportive treatment for 4-6 weeks which includes bed rest, light diet rich in fruits and veges, enough fluids etc. Your doctor will guide in this.
Hope this answer will help.
Thank you.
