Is this something correctable? Or is too late to correct this?

Based off this report, the only thing we can say definitively is that you likely have diabetes and high cholesterol. You do have elevation of one of your liver enzymes, but it is only mildly elevated and I would not say you have liver disease without running a complete liver panel, which I do not see here.

Other than what I said above, the other labs are mostly normal. I hope that helps.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Diet and exercise will definitely help with the diabetes and cholesterol and the liver disease. You may need some medications to help but you will have to ask your doctor for that.

Can diabetes be reversed?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Are there not different levels of diabetes?

Yes, diabetes can definitely be reversed. Medications can help but diet and exercise and reducing the amount of sugar in your diet will be the most important.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me a 5-star rating. We can continue to speak even after you rate if you would like. Thanks!

Have I shorten my life?

No, as long as you make some changes and start living a healthier life.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
How many levels of diabetes are there?

Type I and Type II so just two. Type I is genetic. Type II is from an unhealthy lifestyle.
