I asked a few days ago a question about high levels of triglycerides in the case of an isolated CBAVD (congenital bilateral absence of vas deferens, heterozygous for the DF508 mutation, intermediate sweat test, chronic sinusitis). I realize that I was wrong when I mentioned a high HDL cholesterol level; when checking my results, my HDL cholesterol is not high, but transaminases are. I wanted to know if these high rates could be related to a mild form of cystic fibrosis. Thank you in advance for your answer.
Dear questioner,
Transaminases may be elevated in patients with classic CF as there may be liver damage, up to liver cirrhosis in approximately 6% of patients. This does not seem to be the case in patients with a CFTR-related disease. You can talk with your doctor, and if necessary complete the liver tests and perform a doppler ultrasound liver exam. One must of course look for other causes.
Best regards.
Dr Dominique Hubert
