Hello, sniper34,
Two of your liver tests are abnormal. These enzymes usually stay abnormal
for sometime even after the damaging substance such as alcohol, drugs, viral
infections etc. have already gone out of your system.
I am glad to know that you are not a drinker. I advice you to stay away from it.
It is good to limit fatty, greasy or fried foods at least until the liver enzymes
come back to normal. You do need to take a good B-Complex Vitamin with Vit-C.
Protein supplements are good.
We do need to find out what is causing the liver inflammation.
You need to get Hepatitis-B and C blood tests to make sure you have not been
exposed to these viruses with chronic inflammation. If you have been on any
NSAID type of drugs (Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) , they can do this.
Certain antibiotics belonging to the sulfa or tetracycline family also does this.
Auto-immune liver disease , some metabolic or genetic enzyme deficiency disorders
can affect the liver.
You need to have all these ruled out if the liver enzymes stay high after 3-6 months.
Discuss these with your doctor and take proper action.
I wish you well.
