The Cause Of Nausea Is Vomiting After Eating Green Mussels And High SGOT SGPT Lab Results?
afternoon, I want to ask there is a case of someone after consuming green mussels he experienced nausea mutah. So he assumed that the shellfish had been poisoned. after a laboratory check, the levels of SGOT / SGPT were high, so the doctor diagnosed acute hepatitis.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
SGOT (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase) and SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase) are 2 enzymes produced in the liver. SGOT and SGPT production often increases when your liver function is disrupted, for example due to hepatitis (acute or chronic), cirrhosis, poisoning, blocked arteries, or cancer. Disorders of other organ systems, such as disorders of the bladder or bile ducts (such as inflammation, stones, or cancer), burns, heart attacks, extreme sports, muscle injuries, pregnancy, pancreatitis, seizures, and post surgery can also cause levels of SGOT and SGPT increases.
The term food poisoning can actually refer to a broad spectrum of diseases caused by consumption of food or drink contaminated with pathogenic microorganisms (such as bacteria, viruses, or parasites) or poisons. Acute hepatitis can also be one of the causes of food poisoning. In addition, food poisoning can also be caused by other microorganisms, for example campylobacter, clostridium botulinum, e.coli, giardia lamblia, listeria, rotavirus, salmonella (often called typhus), shigella, s. aureus, and so on. If the patient's shellfish consumption is unhygienic, it is most likely that the disease started here.
Without examining the patient's condition directly, it is certainly not our authority to conclude what the exact course of the disease the patient is experiencing, whether basically he already has high levels of SGOT and SGPT, or just because of the poisoning the SGOT and SGPT levels have risen. Authorized to answer this is certainly a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine who examined the patient directly. Therefore, consult directly with him ..
I hope this helps.
