Elevated Liver Enzyme

7 posts in this topic

Did anyone else have elevated liver enzymes before being diagnosed? If so, what exactly does this mean?

Did they go back to normal after several months?

Elevated liver enzymes are associated with untreated celiac disease. You can find several threads here about it. Some people said their levels returned to normal after being on the gluten-free diet awhile.

Thanks for the reply. Thats what I was thinking. I was gluten free for a few years and was doing so much better until I had a doctor tell me that because I had mucus after a BM, it was IBS not celiac.....well to make a long story short, I ate gluten for a few weeks and I seriously felt like I was dying so I went to a dif. doctor who ran blood work and it was confirmed and now my liver is showing the elevated enzymes. That will be the last time that I listen to a non GI doctor.

I am going back to the GI in Jan. Hopefully the levels will be down from the gluten free diet.

I wouldn't listen to that doctor anymore either. It always makes sense to check things out for yourself I think, and verify what they tell you.

Thanks for the help GFinDC. I did a search on elevated liver enzymes. It seems like it's pretty common with celiac disease. Hopefully with the diet, my liver will fix itself.

I have elevated liver enzymes too! In December they were 55, 109. Two weeks later they were 96, 232!!! I've had an ultrasound and everything checked out ok and I all my followup blood work was ok (no hepatitis or other things like that). I'm recommitting to gluten free and hopefully by my next check on January 29th, they'll show improvement.
