Swollen Stomach And High Bilirubin Yield?
Good morning from … my parents had swollen stomachs, then after a high blood test it was direct bilirubin with SGOT. Is this disease can be transmitted from ??
Hello Megawati Manalu, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Some causes of complaints from your parents among others:
Liver disease (viral infection / hepatitis, obesity, alcohol, etc.)
Hypoalbumin (low protein levels in the body)
Dyspepsia / stomach ulcers
Swollen stomach can be caused by several things such as excessive gas accumulation, excess fluid accumulation in the abdominal cavity (ascites), or due to obstruction in the intestine. If the swollen stomach is caused by impaired liver function caused by hepatitis virus infection, transmission of hepatitis can occur through needles or through unprotected sexual intercourse.
However, to determine the exact cause of your parents 'complaints, it should be advisable to consult a doctor who treats your parents or a specialist in internal medicine, who has a history of your parents' condition and more complete examination results.
Hopefully this information can help you.
