Decreased SGPT in combination with increased cholesterol levels is seen in cases of a congested liver.We also see increased levels in mononucleosis, alcoholism, liver damage, kidney infection, chemical pollutants or myocardial infarction.Phosphorus is an abundant element found in most tissues and cells.It is closely related to the calcium level with an inverse relationship.
Decreased MCH is associated with microcytic anemia and increased MCH is associated with macrocytic anemia. C.s contain less hemoglobin than normal and a high MCHC means that there is more hemoglobin in a unit of R. Red blood cells main function is to carry oxygen to the tissues and to transfer carbon dioxide to the lungs. There are a number of types of leukocytes (see Platelets (also known as thrombocytes) are the smallest formed elements of the blood.The Mean Corpuscular Volume reflects the size of red blood cells by expressing the volume occupied by a single red blood cell. They are vital to coagulation of the blood to prevent excessive bleeding.Increased readings may indicate macrocytic anemia or B6 or Folic Acid deficiency and decreased readings may indicate microcytic anemia, possibly caused by iron deficiency. Elevated levels suggest dehydration or stimulation of the bone marrow where the cells are produced and decreased levels may indicate an immune system failure, drug reactions, B12 or folic acid deficiency.Serum Glutamic Pyruvic Transaminase or ALT is an enzyme found primarily in the liver but also to a lesser degree, the heart and other tissues.
It is useful in diagnosing liver function more so than SGOT levels.As with Hematocrit, it is an important determinant of anemia (decreased), dehydration (increased), polycythemia (increased), poor diet/nutrition, or possibly a malabsorption problem.
