Hello,



I had an Adenopathy in October with fever (39 max) for about 5 days, I did blood

tests back then for CMV, EBV, Hepatitis A IgM & HBs, they were negative whereas

results for SGOT, SGPT, Phosphatases alcalines & GGT were respectively 78, 101,

240 & 67. They were high. The doctor asked me to redo the liver tests this month

and the levels are now even higher with no fever or any specific symptoms. The

new levels are: SGOT: 145, SGPT: 241, Phosphatases alcalines: 222 & GGT: 62. My

doctor asked me today to visit a gastroenterologist to diagnose the problem. I

have an appointment next week but i'm terribly concerned now. What can really be

the problem? Can it be hepatitis? HIV? An STD? I did my Pap test 2 month ago everything is normal.I take lots of ponstant forte during period. I've also been taking pills to lose weight (forte pharma minceur.It's worth mentioning that I had

an unprotected sexual relation more than 2 years ago and I had hepatitis B and

HIV tests twice, 5 month and one year and a half after the potential risk, but

they were all negative. Please advise!
