Customer Question
AST (SGOT) is 200...

AST (SGOT) is 200! scared as I've not been drinking and want to know why it is so high?! I see my PCP on Tuesday next week but VA does give lab results beforehand.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Weight loss, nausea, no appetite.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She knows everything.. at one point she had me on all these different vitamins so to speak but i was unable to tolerate swallowing all those pills. eventually she told me to just get the flinstones vitamins with iron and the gummy vitamin D.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Not necessarily allergic to meds except the narcotics which make me throw up.I take 3 blood pressure meds every day along with the vitamins.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
