Reply To: Increased AST normal ALT liver enzymes
Hi Chirpy – I Googled “IVIG & elevated liver enzymes” and this link came up: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12883923
If you read through, it states ” Significant changes in laboratory findings were seen for leucocytes, erythrocytes, haematocrit, haemoglobin, ALAT and ASAT. None of these changes were clinically relevant. The elevation of liver enzymes was dependent on the IVIg preparation used, while there was no association with the underlying disease, age, or gender of the patient.”
Perhaps you should speak with your dr about changing IVIG brands & making sure you switch to one that is prepared differently than the one you are currently using?
