Blood test done, liver enzymes elevated, high cholesterol, abdominal pain, metallic test in mouth. Cure?

I am 38 and recently had a blood test as part of a life insurance physical. My liver enzymes were elevated, my cholesterol was at an all-time high of 281 despite me being in the best shape I have been in since my 20 s. A year ago my liver enzymes were elevated during a routine physical, but returned to normal in a follow-up test 3 weeks later. I have had some upper abdominal pain that seems to be aggrevated after meals and this morning I began having a pretty severe metallic taste in my mouth. My doctor can not see me until 5/10, should I wait or should I seek a follow-up to the blood work prior to that?

hi.. you have not given the history of alcohol intake.. which may cause alcoholic liver disease and raised liver enzymes.. it also alters the lipid profile.. causes gastritis.. you are on the antacids..with proton pump inhibitor.. metallic taste could be due to some drug intake..see your physician, take multivitamins/liver protectives like silymarine and liver enzyme preparations.. all the best
