Question: My husband has recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after a sugar level reading of 500. Now he has a high liver enzyme count and a dialated bike duct. Could the high sugar reading be contributing to this?

Brief Answer:
Liver enzymes

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking

The high level of sugar can’t cause high liver enzymes and dilated duct bills

Some causes for this situation are

cholecystitis, which is an inflammation of the gallbladder. cholangitis, which is an inflammation of the common bile duct. an increased level of conjugated bilirubin, which is a waste product of the liver. an increased level of liver enzymes. etc

You should consult your doctor for further exams like abdominal ultrasound,scan CT etc

I have recently been diagnosed with cholangitis by my gastro dr but was not prescribed antibiotics. My doctor said ERCP would be the treatment, however, I was hospitalized for 34 days last year with pancreatitis and an ERCP at the time inflamed that condition consideralby. I was wondering if I should ask my dr if I should be on antibiotics, he set me up for a follow up in 4 months to have a blood test done at that time. The cholangitis diagnoses came up as a result of a liver biospsy I had done last month. Thanx p.s. He diagnosed me with crhonic pancreatitis last year.

I am a 32 y/o male and I recently had a blood test done and my liver enzymes are elevated. GGT-116 ALT-49 Alk Phos-136 and also had a high calcium result of 10.3. I do not have any noticeable symptoms and do not drink. I have had my gallbladder removed when I was 14 as I was reading the elevations could be due to blockage from gallstone in my bile ducts? Any help?

i had laprascopic cholecystectomy on august 23. the surgeon stated their were complications. i had five incision site; the imbilical one contained 8 sutures alone and a jp drain. since that time i have constant pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, appearance of jaundice on my face. i have been to see the surgeon four times and to the e.r. the surgeon stated that i had fluid in the abdomen and cholangitis and gave me a prescription for antibiotics that i am not responding too. i am thinking there is a bile duct injury. i have had two ct scans with contrast and it is not showing anything out of the norm they say and blood work just shows elevated wbc. i thought that it was the norm to either do a choliangagram (not spelled correctly) or ultrasound. i am looking for another doctor before it worsens. because everything i read sounds like a bile duct injury.
