    Re: elevated liver enzymes

    Well, I have news. Two weeks past so today I repeated the blood test. Guess what, my liver enzymes are almost back to normal (highest normal levels, but normal) and the good thing is I have not reduced the dose. So I will continue for now with Rebif 22 and see how it goes. Just in case I will have another blood test in two weeks. In two weeks is my neuro's appointment as well.
    Thank you very much for supporting me and helping me make the right decision.

    Re: elevated liver enzymes

    is this where i say 'told ya so?" Only kidding, Thes, but its happend to so many people, including myself that I was hoping youd be just like the rest of us!
    Glad to hear it worked out...everyone should know that this is a catch 22 type deal- when you first start on Interferons, be it Avonex, Rebif or Betaseron, this can happen and its not abnormal for it to happen, however the actual possiblity of liver damage does exist, and it is critically important to get those blood levels done at least quarterly the first few months to watch for changes and whether or not things level out on their own....Thes, youll be fine, its very unusual once they come back down to elevate again- but to be safe - follow your doctors orders and get tested when he says to.

    let us know how you are...
