| | My ggt is 667 and alk phos is elevated too
A couple of months ago (Sept) I got these lab results and I had a CT scan of abdomen in which I freaked out, so the scan was compromised, but they did see that my common bile duct and biliary duct (?) were enlarged. I had gallbladder removed in '88, and I don't drink or take ibuprofen or tylenol products, but I do take many, many meds for multiple medical conditions. I don't know how much my alk. phos. was, but I remember the number for my GGT because it's like 110 times more than it should be (doc told me 5 to 55 is the norm-?) Now, in January, my GGT is 397 which is still really elevated, but I have been taking Milk Thistle and have started a diabetic diet since September 2, so I'm not sure if it's the diet or the Milk Thistle that made my liver enzymes go down 300 points, but I am still going to have to see the gastroenterologist again in February and probably have a liver biopsy. By the way, the diabetic diet has helped me lose 40 lbs. and my A1C (diabetic labs) is down from 7.6 to 5.2 which is great and the doc had to reduce my insulin in half, so I know this "diet" as I called it earlier is really a lifestyle change for me that I'll do for the rest of my life. In many ways, I feel so much better, but I'm worried about my liver. Oh, I also test negative for types of Hepatitis, but they still want me to get the Hep. vaccinations -- ?
Anyone got any ideas or comments about all of this--I would REALLY appreciate just hearing from one person who's got similar symptoms.
