I'm also taking 6 tablets each day of LiverAid by Liverite which can be purchased in any healthfood store. I'm also on a strict vegetarian diet. I plan to also do Coffee Enemas (must use organic coffee) which rids the liver of toxins (do a search: Coffee Enema ). I plan to be retested in 3 months. At this stage, I plan to use all natural versus drugs. I know what caused my ALT to rise: Alcohol and lots of it however there are other causes such as Atkins Diet and Cholesterol Drugs. What are your numbers for AST, ALP, Total Bilirubin and Albumin?
The last time i got tested i only went for ALT. That was on 10/15/03 and the ALT figure was 122 I.U/L.
However, i had a complete profile test back in 06/09/03. The following were the results of that test:
S. TOTAL BILIRUBIN 0.9 mg/dl
S. DIRECT BILIRUBIN 0.1 mg/dl
S. INDIRECT BILIRUBIN 0.8 mg/dl
GAMMA GT 53 I.U/L
ALT 176 I.U/L
ALKALINE PHOSPHATE 85 I.U/L
I didnt test for albumin.
Moreover, i have been diagnosed with NASH.
Eversince being diagnosed with NASH (10/21/03) i have been on a strict diet and really watching my food. I have also lost 10-11 lbs so far. I am now currently 189 lbs at a height of 5'9.5 .
Howl ogn does it take for normalization of ALT figure? And when should i go for a re-test?
Also can u suggest me some good links?
