Hi all, I’m just back from a Dr appointment about my ongoing pain just under my right rib. He said that all of my lft results were well within range (he read them out and all were pretty much low to mid-range) and ultrasound scan showed a normal shape, size and texture liver.
He then went on to tell me that the lft that I had a few years ago (when I was drinking a lot) showed one mildly elevated test of 67, (ALT I think) against a limit of 40. This sounds pretty bad to me and 50% higher than it should be but he said it is normal and not to worry about it - probably alcohol related. He has agreed to do another lft tomorrow but I am freaking! He is also checking for h.pylori and b12 and folate
By the way, 6 weeks off the booze for me but I would like to be able to have the occasional glass of wine once this is sorted.
