Hi, I am 21 and have had high gamma GT for over 2 years now. I had blood tests Monday (7/3/16) and had an appointment for my results today (10/3/16) and am now being referred back to the gastroenterologist that had been seeing me. My gamma GT level is 113. I don't drink a lot, and if I do it's rare. And I have also noticed some weight gain/bloating in me torso. I have also noticed that when I have pain in my right side my levels are high (even tho my specialist said it isn't linked).
Has anyone had anything similar, this is related to a previous post and I will post it below. Any help would be great!! Thank you!
Previous post: Sorry for the long post, this has been going on for a while now. Whenever I come here to find similar issues I can never exactly find one so i'll explain mine.
In October 2013 my liver function (enzyme levels) tests started to come back as slightly high but nothing major (they put it down to rising due to the fact I was pregnant) but they are STILL high. I have had SO many blood tests. In April 2014 they were very high sitting at about 300. They have gone up and down since then. Throughout 2014 they went from 300 down to 150 down to 70 and back up again. February 2015 I had an MRI which showed nothing, I have had chest X-rays and ultrasounds on my other organs which again, have come back normal. I then had a back mri as I get pain in my right side (liver area) and again, it came back normal. However my liver function tests are still coming back high. they were considering a liver biopsy a few months back, my levels had dropped to 61, then in a month gone up to 115. they said, for me, they aren't high enough for one yet so are monitoring it with routine blood tests. I had my most recent tests done Tuesday as I have experienced some unexplained weight loss and tiredness, I phoned thursday and they were all back. All normal, except once again my liver function test. But for different reasons. Apparently the blood had 'clotted' so they were unable to test it? She claimed it was normal but it had NEVER happened in my life, nor my mum and grandads (who have had thousands of blood tests done). Im sure im just making myself paranoid but it's bugging me that these tests have been abnormal for 2+ years and is causing me pain and they still don't know why. Im 21, dont drink much as im a single parent and I don't and have never done any kind of drugs. Has this happened to anyone/anyone you know? Thank you
