Hi all, it's been a while since I posted on my condition. Had some bloods done recently whilst being checked for a respiratory issue which turned out to be whooping cough. I don't recommend you get that at the age of 61 but anyway that's on the mend slowly after 10 weeks. However the bloods showed very high ggt and slightly elevated alt. I knew I had high ggt as I have fatty liver but the alt alarmed me as all my liver tests had always been normal other than ggt. The cholesterol was also high at 7 which was my gps initial concern at first. It has been higher in the past. Having been on this site long enough to realise that I've been remiss in not being serious enough about treating the fatty liver. Having a U/s on Friday and I think I can predict the results sadly. Since seeing the ggt scores stopped drinking completely hadn't been drinking much anyway so that was other a month ago. Symptoms currently are stools on the pale side. No liver pain as such but liver feels inflamed across the back which comes and goes. For the rest don't feel too bad in fact felt worse when I first posted on this site a few years back. If it wasn't for this site I think I would be in a dark place but strangely calm. I'm hoping I can get the inflammation down and hope not too much damage done despite the very high ggt. I know we shouldn't post but it's 10 times what it should be so a bit of a worry. Will keep you posted.
