Not sure what to think. A's ALT and AST have been consistently elevated for over a year. I honestly wasn't worried. Just figured it was her new normal. The Immunologist called last week, concerned because her AST was 60 (norm is 10-30). Had us repeat labs....51. He hasn't called back to discuss results, just trying to figure out if I should worry or not. She's been over 350 before (from 6mp) and is experiencing some of the same symptoms....but that could also be from adjusting her medication. Thoughts?
A is 13

Diagnoses: Immune Dysfunction, Hypogammaglobulinemia, Asthma, Allergies

Treatment: Hizentra, Flovent, Zyrtec, Cellcept

Without the IgG her labs are a mess. So it's not that. Liver numbers were higher on the lower dose of Cellcept....so probably not that either. No antibiotics since November.

When we were considering Cellcept, we were told it was hard on the liver, if I am remembering correctly.

Sorry, I can't be any more helpful - I hope you can get to the bottom of it soon!

Her numbers were elevated prior to starting Cellcept....so I don't know.

Found out at today's Pulmo appt that she has lower airway inflammation too. Going to switch to Advair. Things are just a little out of control right now. Bummed.
