I had some anxiety and vomiting from being nervous she tested everything. It was the one test that was off. All other values were normal including ALT.
I drink a couple times a month. I have also binge drank a few times this year at bachelor parties.
I was taking several OTC meds, a couple of xanax for the anxiety but the total dose was only 1mg. I had taken in the month prior, mucinex, pepto, zantac, motrin. However stopped taking all medications and drinking after first elevated enzyme level. Yet the ALT increased by a few points. Dr said wasn't concerned with the increase though.
I have drastically changed my diet in the last month since finding out. But prior had eaten fast food and high fat diet several times a week, for two years. In those two years my weight went from 190 to 210-215 range. I am 6 feet 2 inches.
Dr believed was simply temporary elevation or from diet. however i am worried could be autoimmune. I am a diagnosis hypchondriac and do see a therapist for it.
Also GI Dr asked me to return after losing weight and eating healthier and retest levels in three months. I am very nervous and three months seems long to me.
How concerned should I be for something more serious. Should I be concerned with the autoimmune stuff?
The Dr did not want to test for them said he didn't believe was cause.
I have begun to exercise by walking daily. Consume no fatty foods any longer, eat a lot of fruit and veg and have lost 10 lbs. Would you suggest to wait two more months still.
Sorry just very concerned something more serious, despite my pcp and specialist not showing much concern. Just worried since they can not tell me exactly what is going on. Just that mild fatty liver does not show on ultrasound.
Last question why is not suggestive of autoimmune?
