Hello georgannebowes. Thank you for visiting healthcaremagic.com. I am glad that you survived your paracetamol
) overdose as these can lead to fulminant liver failure
. I would advise that you avoid tylenol and alcohol as both can damage the liver and the effect of the two are additive in nature for liver damage
A blood test
at your family physician's office can give you your liver function numbers. These numbers, if elevated, can show that your liver is inflamed, however if they are normal it does not mean that you liver is not damaged. The other diagnostic tests to tell a "level" of liver damage requires a referral to a GI specialist.
Be well, Dr. Kimberly
