Liver disease skin rashes

Common Questions and Answers about Liver disease skin rashes


1714226 tn?1308628705 hi, I am a 1 1/2 year post liver transplant patient. My advice is to see a GI specialist who focuses on liver disease. There are a series of diagnostic procedures they would recommend if warranted. If liver disease is confirmed then they should request blood labs to determine a MELD score. In a nutshell, this can become very overwhelming but I am trying to reassure you that there many steps to take before determining the worst case.
1714226 tn?1308628705 Hi, my name is Patty and I am 29 years old. To say that liver disease runs in my family would be a huge understatement, for my grandmother, aunt, and my father have all died of cirrhosis of the liver. Neither of the 3 were alcoholics either. Since the age of 18, I have had routine checkups and blood work, keeping a close eye on my liver function and health. In January of 2010, I was diagnosed with gallbladder disease and had surgery to remove it.

Avatar f tn Liver disease? Whether or not you have liver disease depends on how long your liver has been injured. An ALT of 124 (maximum range is 38); AST of 265 (maximum range is 40) and my Alkaline Phosphates were 139 (maximum range is 126) indicates liver injury when you had the test taken. " My question is can I have a liver issue going on and have a normal ultrasound? " Yes. An ultrasound can only see when liver disease is advanced and you develop cirrhosis or liver lesions.

Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Other conditions cause itchy skin as well. Skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders, diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals, wool, soaps, cosmetics and certain foods can cause itchy skin. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area.
Avatar m tn I know now not to even call it a liver disease. It doesn't pass from liver to liver. It passes from blood to blood. If we could just seperate the blood disease from the stigma of being somehow 'dirty', maybe then we would see some real research. Like AIDS was considered a 'life style' disease and so much time was wasted on 'life style' issues instead of the AIDS virus. Now AIDS is a pandemic disease that is mostly sexually transmitted in Africa.
