I do not know the numbers that they were elevated at just that they are out of normal range and to not take tylenol when this happens. I do not drink alcohol but I did start smoking about 3 years ago which they said could be the reason my hemoglobulin was elevated as well. Yes I have flatulence and have lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks because I have lost my apatite. I have an ultra sound done of my abdomen and CT last year because they thought my gallbladder may be to blame but it came back fine they did think mild gastroparsis but I was never diagnosised with it
i smoke 7 cigarettes a day, no alcohol, i have seen a gastro doc they r the ones that thought it could possibly gastroparesis. I take lamictal xr, abilify, atrevostatin (just started a year ago)
Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your discomfort and still no diagnosis.
As per your description,If the liver enzymes were only mildly elevated, with normal ultrasound, I'd just recheck the levels in, say three months.
Different liver disorders raise the enzymes in different ways, so, potential differential diagnosis may includeViral hepatitis
Autoimmune hepatitis Exposure to high dose Vitamin A, industrial solvents, and volatile hydrocarbons could cause ALT/AST lelevations as well.You should be tested for hemochromatosis (iron storage disease), and Wilson's disease (copper deposition disease).Celiac disease (gluten sensitivity) may also causes elevated liver enzymes.
So further Hepatitis screening,Upper GI scopy,Liver biopsy should be done in your case.
In the meantime start probiotic and metamucil.
Also take OTC Prilosec and Mylanta.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Limit your smoking consumption.
Frequent diarrhea can result in fluid and electrolyte loss resulting in dizziness,sweating.
So your blood pressure and blood sugar levels should be checked.
Also take oral rehydration solution.
Make an appointment with your Hepatologist/Gastroenterologist again for proper management.
