Kindly share your advise.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
The report does not look worrying and most findings are normal (attachment remove to protect the patient's identity). Kindly answer the below-mentioned questions so that I could guide you better.
1. What are your symptoms currently and why were these tests done?
2. Do you have any prior medical issues?
3. Are you on any medicines now?
Please revert with details so that I can explain.
The problem started during my yearly exam. I was having rib pain at that time which turned out to be an impingement of thoracic region (T8). He suggested to undergo alkaline phosphatase which was repeated after sometime. I am not experiencing any symptoms. But my doctor suggested to meet a hepatologist. He also suggested to get MRI done.
Kindly share your opinion.
