Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
You have elevated liver enzymes
, which has been confirmed on two occasions, but as per your description, they have been high for over a year. As you corrected suspected, copaxone (glatiramer acetate) used for treating multiple sclerosis (MS), does not lead to elevated liver enzymes. MS per se is a disease of central nervous system
(affecting brain, spinal cord
and optic nerves); liver is not affected in MS.
In view of a positive family history of liver cancer
, you possibly should further pusue the abnormality in liver function tests. However, based on Ultrasound
exam, your liver is absolutely normal and it is a great relief.
