61 Possible Causes for Hypoalbuminemia, Liver Enzymes Abnormal, Steatorrhea

  • Pancreatic Insufficiency

    Over time, weight loss, anorexia, muscle wasting and flatulence ensue, while severe cases suffer from profound hypoalbuminemia that can manifest with leukonychia.[symptoma.com] Liver enzyme activity such as serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase and alkaline phosphatase are mildly increased and may reflect hepatocyte damage secondary[vin.com] CF should therefore be considered in the differential diagnosis of infants with steatorrhea and failure to thrive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyloidosis

    In the present case, intestinal protein loss might explain the presence of hypoalbuminemia and diarrhea.[scielo.isciii.es] Generally, the amyloid-infiltrated liver feels very hard, and elevated liver enzymes (particularly alkaline phosphatase) and other liver function abnormalities may be detected[rarediseases.org] The symptoms include diarrhea, steatorrhea, or constipation. Pseudo-obstruction carries a particularly grave prognosis, often not responding to pro-motility agents.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
