JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?

JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

the liver enzymes are not really far off.

It has nothing to do with graves.

Gallbladder dysfunciton can give this enzyme picture.

So can fatty liver , non alcoholic.

So can drug toxicity.

Your doctor also needs to check iron and ferritin, and do hepatitis screens.

Although it is not likely you have these.
