Good day all,
Just wanted to get your opinion about something.
I recently went for my 6 monthly blood test and ultrascan. Everything on the ultrascan was fine, although about a year ago the ultrascan consultant noticed 2 polyps which have been monitored with no further size increase and smaller than the recommended stance if having them removed.
My bloods, however, came back with a slight elevation on my ALT - 40 (range 0-35) and my AFP - 3 (range 0-10).
Usually my average ALT hovers around the 30 mark (so below the range threshold) and my AFP has been 2 for countless years.
I’m a 40yr old Asian male who’s been on Tenovofir disoproxil Mylan (245 mg) for the past 5+ years and my HBV virus has been UNDETECTED for in as many years.
The liver specialist advised they wanted me to take my next set of blood tests in 3 months as opposed to 6 (so June time).
Should I be worried that 1). My ALT has gone up and is now above the normal range? 2). My AFP has gone up to 3 when it’s been 2 for many years - although still very much in the 0-10 range.
Would a slight increase in ALT or AFP indicate something?
