The present descriptive comparative study revealed significantly lower aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase levels in haemodialysed CKD patients compared to both healthy controls and pre-dialysed CKD patients.
Table-1: Statistical parameters of age, alanine aminotransferase and body mass index on.
Glucose, lactate dehydrogenase, urea, cholesterol, alanine aminotransferase, and aspartate aminotransferase levels are diagnostic values for diabetes mellitus, liver disease, hypoparathyroidism, chronic hepatopathy, gout, kidney disease, chronic diarrhea and dehydration (Ritchie et al., 1994).
HCV carriers with normal alanine aminotransferase levels: healthy persons or severely ill patients?
Inclusion criteria were: age between 18 and 75 years and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 1.5 fold above upper limit of normal for at least 4 months prior to start of the study.
"It used to be that it goes without saying that it's fatty fiver disease" when an obese pediatric patient presents with elevated serum levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), Dr.
(19) Elevated levels of alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase may suggest hepatic injury, but these elevations along with significantly elevated levels of creatine phosphokinase, lactate dehydrogenase, and a high ratio of aspartate aminotransferase to alanine aminotransferase should indicate the correct diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis.
The drug has proven an effective inhibitor of virus replication and has indicated improvements in the increase of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and overall liver health.
Other endpoints observed in the study were a 57 percent increase in liver glycogen and no changes in muscle glycogen or in levels of plasma insulin or alanine aminotransferase.
were as follows: glucose, 108 mg/dL; BUN, 26 mg/dL, creatinine, 1.1 mg/dL; sodium, 138 mmol/L; potassium, 4.2 mmol/L; chloride, 97 retool/L; carbon dioxide, 26 retool/L; calcium, 10.2 mg/dL; liver function tests, normal except for alanine aminotransferase, 64 U/L (normal, 4-60 U/L); WBC count, 8,700/laL; hemoglobin, 16.0 g/dL; hematocrit, 48.3%; and blood mercury, 100 lag/L (normal < 10 [micro]g/L).
However, three other levels were slightly elevated: aspartate aminotransferase: 19 U/L (normal: 3 to 18); alanine aminotransferase: 25 U/L (normal: 3 to 22); and lactate dehydrogenase: 264 U/L (normal: 40 to 240).
His liver function tests showed 60- and 70-fold increases in aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase levels, respectively.
