Elevated liver enzymes

<< < (3/3)

My liver enzymes were fluctuating like crazy, and were 5X the normal level. It turned out that my previous drug regimen was causing the elevated levels, but prior to the switch, my doctor expressed a fair amount of confidence that it was NAFLD.

I had an ultrasound. My doctor said there is no sign of fatty liver. If they are high when I get more bloodwork done next month im going to ask for a referral to a GI doctor. I am reading things on the internet that conflict with information he is giving me. For instance I had a gall bladder attack when all of this started. He insists only bilirubin is effected by gallbladder problems. I've read countless stories from people with gallbladder problems who had all of their liver enzymes go berserk.

After being elevated for 4 months my liver enzymes have returned to normal. My doctor blames the drug Lamictal.
