Topics I've Started

Dr. Stunned By My Results :)

31 January 2013 - 10:15 AM

I have rheumatoid arthritis and have to have my blood drawn every six weeks to check for liver toxicity from the drugs. In 8 years they've always come back normal. In December they came back elevated. I stopped meds and mid-January was retested, they more than doubled! I had an ultrasound (normal) and other blood work done (normal). I did some research on my own and found that high liver enzymes can be the result of celiac. I had more tests done and then went 100% gluten free for a week. Dr. called with results. Liver tests were not only back to normal but were on the low side of normal! He said he really didn't expect the celiac to be the cause but it is! He was totally surprised, said that it's not a common "symptom" and he wasn't expecting positive results from it. Now, I stay 100% gluten free, and then I came home, put dinner in the crockpot and THEN realized the soup I used has wheat flour ..... *sigh*.... husband will have that, I will fix myself something different, lol! Old habits are going to be hard to break!

Urq Pain And Elevated Liver Enzymes?

21 January 2013 - 02:59 PM

I've been having URQ pains for a while now and in December my liver enzymes were elevated and in January they had doubled from December. I've had blood tests for hepatitis and had an ultrasound of the gall bladder, liver, pancreas, stomach, lungs and kidneys. Those all came back ok. I went *back* off gluten on Saturdaythe 19th and I get another round of blood tests on the 29th.

Have any of you had these symptoms? OH, and serious constipation!
