I just went for bloodwork and am concerned that my liver ALT is still high. i will confess i put all my health issues on the shelf for a while and havent had blood work in 2 yrs. ive been enjoying my life, eating out and not obsessing over food so much. however, i am worried that in the process i may have been causing more damage to myself. whenever i eat out i say gluten allergy and am always very careful, but the reality is it will still slip in somewhere.

i had breakfast at a restaurant last week and i told them i was allergic to gluten and they brought out eggs with bacon and hash browns. the hash browns were more like small french fries and after i ate one i asked the server if they were fried in a dedicated fryer. he said no and also said they were coated in flour...it happens. anyway, even if you are on a strict gluten-free diet the reality is you are gonna get some level of cc and if that can cause an elevation in liver enzymes, can this be detrimental to your liver long-term?

I lived in a box for 1 year and was depressed and hated my life cause i barely ate out and i cant go back to that lifestyle again. i have really been enjoying life and i cant take a step backwards at this point.

would appreciate advice . i will repost when i get my blood work but i am a little nervous that the ALT may still be elevated or higher than it was 2 yrs ago or that there may be other things wrong. my regular exam was fine, EKG, urine and lung xrays were all normal

thanks so much!

Jason try not to worry about it until you get the test results back. When you get the results post them if they are not normal and perhaps someone will have some answers for you. With the previous elevated ALT hopefully you are being kind to your liver and either avoiding alcohol altogether or at least drinking very little.
