Blood Results Back

6 posts in this topic

Heyy so got my blood results back Friday listed the tests i got below

Full blood count, Glucose random, Liver function tests, Thyroid function test and Urea and electrolytes for gp and ESR

All came back normal apart from my Liver which was high, anything i should interpret from this? I have to have it retaken in another 3 weeks to see if it changes any. I was reading that people with celiac/intolerance's can have higher liver enzymes though not sure why. Thx

My liver was high at celiac dx and lowered at each check - was normal at my one year celiac follow-up.

From what I understand the elevated liver enzymes is your liver working overtime to help clear waste. Made sense to me that mine was elevated with the stress my body was under. I would certainly ask your doctor what else could cause elevated liver enzymes.

Hi there.

Has your doc advised you to do anything differently during these 3 weeks? And do you know what 'high' means in terms of numbers? My LFT came back at 40 when average is 35. I was worried but doc said it's only a bit high and she sees results in the hundreds. I felt reassured and have retake test in 6 months. Despite reassurance i'm still going to reduce alcohol intake. Did your doc give any indication as to why liver test might be raised?

Good luck.

Nicky

Hey Nicky, No the doctor hasn't advised anything it was just a chat over the phone so it was hard to get much. I dont have the number suppose i should find out. He just asked me about my alcohol intake which for the last 3 months has been zero though as ive already discussed with him i did live the "binge" lifestyle for around 3-4 years. The thing is its easy to just blame the alcohol and interesting that people with Celiac do have higher liver numbers.

Hi Nicky-

My personal experience matches what your doctor said. My was slightly high at Celiac Diagnosis low 40s with reference range of 0-33. My Celiac Doc told me that it is quite common for elevated liver enzymes with active Celiac Disease. It came down steadily over time gluten-free and was in normal range by one year. I'm at 3.5 years gluten-free and it has held steady around 15 for over a year.

Not suggesting you should drink more, but I did enjoy a glass or two of red wine many evenings while my liver numbers were steadily falling.

    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?
      My 6 year old just got prescribed an antibiotic (keflex) and is the liquid pink stuff they give kids.  I just realized I didn't ask if it was gluten free when I picked it up from the pharmacy!  Anyone know if I should be concerned?  Does that pink stuff have gluten?
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      We suspect my 6 year old cannot tolerate gluten-free oats either... do we need to treat them just like wheat as far as CC issues?  Should I not cook oatmeal in pots that we prepare her food in?

      Having anxiety is a major symptom of celiac disease per many of our members on this forum (including me).  These are the tests needed for diagnosing celiac disease but the catch is that you need to be consuming gluten in order for them to be valid.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your GP or PCD doctor can order the panel.  Try to go for the complete panel.  Often just the TTG tests are given in order to save costs.  It's good, but does not catch all celiacs. I hope you get relief!

      You need to have your adrenal glands checked. I was diagnosed with celiac after my adrenal glands started to shut down. Since then I have met at least 3 others that had the same thing happen. It was missed 3 times in the hospital, for some reason the adrenals often get missed.  It sounds like the latter stages of hypo adrenalism, not adrenal fatigue. Research it to see if that seems like what you are going through and make sure you find a dr that knows how to diagnose and treat it

      Hi my name is Alex and I am 23 years old. I am suffering so badly right now in life. Everyday I have multiple, very severe panic attacks. I have called 911 many times in the last 6 months. I am suffering with vertigo, intense weakness and pains, I can not digest anything, I have terrible acid reflux, I can't sleep, I can't relax, my heart constantly palpitates, my breathing is "forced labor" all day. I am suffering in a mental fog. I have been from doctor to hospital to doctor and every EKG comes back normal, every doctor says the same thing, I am struggling with anxiety and they write me whatever prescription of the week they are offering  I recently took it upon myself to cut gluten out of my diet, and wallah! I felt like I did in high school within 2 days. I work in NYC and many times it is nearly impossible to find something containing no gluten, and many times when I ask they tell me "No Gluten" and I eat whatever food I ordered (probably salad w/ dressing) and i find myself driving home in a terrible panic attack. Panic is my main symptom. I have not been diagnosed yet, but the difference from how I feel and how to the people around me tell me I act I am 100% convinced. The question I'm having is, what do you think? Is it possible I have Celiac? Can panic be the main symptom? I'm telling you right now, my anxiety is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. I lay on the ground for 2 hours with numb limbs feeling like I am having a stroke unable to talk to anyone. I have 2 of these a day. Please let me know your thoughts. I truly am a novice with all of this. I am suffering and I need help. Thanks

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
