Liver Enzymes Up
0

3 posts in this topic

I went to the Dr. A week or so ago and he did blood work, one blood test was for Liver enzymes evidently. He put me on Terbinafine Tablets for my toenails coming off. Then we went on Vacation! Ughhh I for got my pills! Ohh well it was too late , came home and get a call from the Dr, That my liver enzymes are up, quit taking the Terbinafine , 

What does my liver enzymes have to do with Celiac? He did the blood work before I started taking the pills so the pills were not the reason. I understand why he wants me to stop taking the pills. But what does liver enzymes have to do with Celiac?

If you look up the drug Terbinafine, you will see that one of the possible side effects is liver injury--so if your liver enzymes are elevated before you even start taking the drug, that might put you at greater risk for liver injury.  Don't worry, however, about having taken the drug for such a short period of time.  As for your elevated "liver enzymes", they might really reflect what is going on with you celiac condition and your gastrointestinal tract rather than what is going on with your liver since these tests can sometimes be elevated with diseases not involving the liver.  Depending on what your liver enzyme test results were, your doctor may want to do some further testing to determine why they are elevated.

I read this in there

 

 

Effects

Up to 42 percent of people newly diagnosed with celiac disease have raised liver enzymes, according to research published in 1995 in the medical journal "Hepatology." However, the study found that the liver enzyme test results normalized once the patients had followed strict gluten-free diets for one year, indicating that any damage to their livers due to their gluten ingestion had reversed itself. Another study, published in 2011 in the "American Journal of Gastroenterology," reported a much lower percentage of newly diagnosed celiacs with elevated liver enzymes -- 11 percent. However, that study also found that a gluten-free diet tends to lower elevated liver enzymes in people with celiac.

    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      Thanks so much for your reply and the encouragement! She has not had the dgp test. I will ask her doctor at the next appointment in two weeks. Her doctor is out of the country now for a family emergency so I can't talk to her before her appointment. Her thyroid is good. The whole thing has been tough - logistically dealing with the dietary change and how extremely careful we have to be. Emotionally - worrying about her health and her feelings about all of this. I'm happy her number came down so much. There's hope. I'm just praying there's not more wrong and trying to prevent any possible risk of cross contamination. It seems she's very sensitive. It's also tough she's a kid at school with gluten on every surface.

      Wonderful news to hear that he has finally had his testing done, and can go gluten free. I understand that he is afraid of needles. Most children are. It is great that the hospital have acknowledged his and your family's suffering. Hopefully now they will give him the A1 treatment that he deserves. I am really looking forward to hearing of his improvement, as no doubt he will come along in leaps and bounds. Children are remarkably resilient, and with any luck he will enjoy a healthy and bright future with adherence to his required diet. Way to go Mum, you have been through a lot, watching your boy suffer. I hope that you are handsomely rewarded with being able to watch him flourish now. Good luck with your older boy too. Keep us posted.

      Well thank goodness the gluten eating is over for him now & he can begin the journey back to good health! Poor fella. He was so sick! Just a heads up --- he isn't going to feel better instantly but at least he's a kid & they heal faster as a general rule. Bone broth!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy mom! That's really going to help him!   Do I recall correctly that you still have the 17 yr. old to go through testing yet?

      Hi Richard Glad you are feeling better!   Sorry - DX is an abbreviation for diagnosis.   Thanks so much  for the info about MSG, broccoli and IBS.  Like you say, there is v. little bad press about broccoli. My aunt, who is a farmer's wife, put forward another theory that it might not have been the broccoli itself but rather some insecticide a farmer sprayed on it.   I just can't bring myself to try organic broccoli however...  Thankfully cauliflower is fine.  I just can't figure it out as I thought they were the in the same vegetable family?  So maybe it is MSG. Regarding anemia, there can be a link with iron anemia and anxiety. http://www.livestrong.com/article/471225-iron-anxiety/ And I was definitely breathless before my diagnosis; I remember finding myself  walking up a hill behind a  huge crowd of friends on a church walk, and many of them were at least 20 years older than me, and wondering why I was in last place! My B12 levels were very low at DX and I found B12 supplements helped enormously with anxiety.   I remember drinking Berroca and feeling so much better within hours of drinking it, on more than one occasion, before even understanding the link. I have just been told however that I can't take any more iron because my hemoglobin is on the high side.  It is a good thing my doctor was monitoring my supplementation as I gather too much iron can be dangerous.  Have you been told to supplement by your doctor?  If you are supplementing make sure you get your levels monitored. All the very best - and welcome to the forum!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
