Blood Results Back
0

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 we only spoke over the phone i guess it wasn't super high or it would have been more urgent. Guess il just have to see what the next results say. Thx

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.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
