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.

    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
    • Has anyone had an reaction to potatoes? Just made couple bake potatoes 2hrs ago and now I feel awful...just wondering thought potatoes were gluten free🤷🏾‍♂️
    • I recently covered some pizzas when adding some grain free options to the gluten alternative list....I actually found a company that makes gluten-free hot pockets also sorta made me laugh. There are some unique ones out there now days even found one that made low carb crust out of chicken breast and cheese. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/
