Re: Liver Enzymes 3 times higher than normal
hi slimz. i don't normally post on this particular board, but i just kept seeing this post sitting there with no real solid info given for you so i thought i could at least let you know a couple things to help? there IS a liver forum here on these boards way down in the 'L" section? this site can REALLY help you with what you are trying to figure out. i post there too with my liver and unfortuently also a kidney disease too.
just what 'specific enzymes" came up out of range on your lab sheet? do you actually HAVE your very own copy OF that lab sheet? if not, DO obtain one, and any other types of testing results you may ever just get done for your own files and so people/docs will know specifics when they are needed too. i do this with ALL testing i have to have and have EVERY single lab sheet on me and also my son who unfortunetly had to have a liver transplant at only age 12. the sheets just allow you to better compare your 'ongoing' labs as far as are they going up or down(this is simply called 'trending" your ongoing labs for any changes). just so YOU know everything that most docs just wont always tell you.
but DO pop into the liver board here and try and post another post there, or you can also answer me here too. but going to that other board will also allow other people who ALSO have liver issues to also possibly give you other valuable info too. but DO get all testing result sheets, it really DOES help us to better know what is going on. and find out the actual names of any specific labs that you are referring to, so when/if you post on the liver board, that post will actually contain names and the numbers you have out of range, which really IS the best way to ask for info. there just are alot of seperate liver functions that get tested for on any hepatic panel run. are you possibly referring to the AST, ALT and either your alkaline phosphotase or GGT? hope this helps you hon, **
