Have you been tested for hepatitis C?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I believe I was but was neg. Note I also have cirrhosis and fibrosis of the liver.

What is cause of cirrhosis?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Alcohol abuse

OK. The lab results are typically seen with cirrhosis, especially increased MCV which may likely be due to folate deficiency . This is easy corrected with folate pill. AST and ALT go along with cirrhosis. Blood count is improving but there may be evidence of kidney disease with decreased GFR. Elevated lymphs and lower white count may indicate a viral infection or may go along with underlying liver disease.
