Hi 🙋🏻‍♂️
I can’t reach my doc but my lab results are somehow strange.
you should know that I take Valcyte that’s provlably why my liver screams… but VITD12? I don’t take it.
if anyone can read and explain these results I would be grateful!

thanks 🙏
Martin

No idea, but guessing this is the active form of Vit D [1,25(OH)2D] versus the Vit D [25(OH)D] form? I believe there's a distinction when looking for deficiencies, but this is beyond my expertise. Just guessing because of how the VitD12 seems to be truncated - maybe it was Vit D 1,25 vs Vit D 25-hydroxyvitamin D, etc?

Wow your egfr is really good! I've never got higher than 90.

How long have you been on the valcyte? Really hope it helps you. I seem to have hit a dead end. Everything I take either causes problems with my kidneys or reactivates my ebv. I think I need Equilibrant and a potent ebv antiviral like tenofovir to make any progress.

Be interested to hear how your valcyte goes. Valcyte is another option for me over tenofovir.

I don’t notice any change. Except my liver values increase and my VitD metabolism is weird. And obviously I’m low in iron (FERR), which I take in high doses so there seems to be a problem in metabolism.
Interestingly mu sugar is quite low and fats high. Maybe a metabolic change toward fat fuel that doesn’t work well. Some pathways might have run out of cofactors for metabolism or enzymes are broken or whatever. Could be a million reasons. Inflammation is one of them. If there are pathogens involved - who knows.

Hmm yeah that is odd. Most people on valcyte feel like death due to viral attempts to replicate or just because the drug is so heavy they feel a lot sicker.

Well I guess if your liver enzymes are raised by too much you can stay on it for awhile.

That sounds good then. Valcyte completely kicks your arse. Hopefully you actually improve ok this after the three month point. Fingers crossed.

Did you have positive blood work for entereoviral infection also?
