Sudden Drop In Alt Level After Eliminating Gluten And Dairy
Posted 21 November 2012 - 05:58 PM
I am wondering if anyone has thoughts or insight into the ALT drop - which strikes me (as a layperson) as quite significant over such a short time period. I'm also wondering what significance might be attached to the elevated AST level, in the context of my ALT levels. It's probably important to note that I have experienced a complete resolution of my biggest problem, diarrhea, since eliminating gluten and dairy.
Any responses are greatly appreciated.

And it's probably awesome to note that, too!

Sorry I don't really know about LF tests, but it's possible that 10 pts doesn't mean that much if the test's precision/repeatability isn't very high. That said . .. .it sure seems like a 10 pt drop from starting gluten-free/df should be significant.
Happy gluten-free Thxgvg!
Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.
Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07

And I'd add complete resolution of the Big D so quickly is great and a solid reason to remain gluten-free.
Hope your first gluten-free Thanksgiving went well

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
