I just had an overall blood test done by my GI's lab . I find it curious that the High- Low range acceptance(21-72 ALT / 17-59 AST ) is different than that of lab corp( 0-55 ALT / 0-40 AST ). I would have thought the acceptance range would be universal, a bit confusing to me . Also I thought I would of had a VL done , 4 weeks done with treatment but , did not see such as of yet. Maybe it had to be sent out of the GI's lab. All in all the numbers look decent is what my Internal Medicine doctor told me today. My AST and ALT were with in the Normal range according to the GI's lab , ALT 33 / AST 28 ) actually even compared to lab corp they do not look bad.Original Lab corp AST was 48 , ALT 68..I am a little anemic but , beyond that I guess my body is handling the poisons ( Pegasys) fairly well. I still get headaches , I still shake a bit even after .5 mg Xanax but , I am eating better now that I have some Phenergan to help my stomach out. I sleep better as I take the Ribavarin around 5PM after a big bowl of hot oat bran with dried apples and a little no salt butter.I also am taking a 10 mg Ambien with a .5mg Xanax at bedtime though...4 shots down and one big bottle of Ribavarin will be gone Tuesday, 1/6 the way there I hope.....
