I have CIRS which means I am highly allergic to mold,

Customer Question
chemicals, etc. I was on...
I have CIRS which means I am highly allergic to mold, chemicals, etc. I was on medication for anxiety and depression. I went from 200 to 280 in 5 months even though I was exercising. I stopped taking the medication. For a year in my apartment, I was having difficulty breathing and had to sleep outside. I could not get out of my lease. Anyway, because of stress I didn't eat healthy. A year later I had higher liver enzymes. I have PCOS so I did everything in my power to lose weight. I got down to 205 but took me 5 years. Anway, my liver enzymes were still high and I was eating healthy. For 6 months due to stress of my job and relationship I drank a glass of red wine 4 times a week for 6 months. A glass a day, 4 times for 6 months. I stopped because my liver enzymes went up higher. After I stopped my left side started to hurt and I gained weight like crazy. I kept gaining. I can not lose weight. So my liver enzymes are super high 122 and 80 ast and alt. I exercise. I KNOW it is my gallbadder. They did a ultrasound said my glabbladder was fine BUT after much research it really depends on the funciton of gallbladder. So I keep pushing for HIDA scan. I am suppose to have dye contrast of my liver, pancerous, etc. but have to have another test first. Any thoughts? Help. Yes, I eat healthy went to dietitican. I worked then stopped working and went back to college for web design. I am on Medicaid but was going to go off it for a job. Due to health afraid of working full-time.

A HIDA scan would show any obstructive issues with the gallbladder. Having it removed would be the only way to correct the problems that you are suspecting with your gallbladder. The only concern would be that your gallbladder also help with digestion of fats so having it removed might decrease your ability to digest fats which could slightly worsen weight issues.
