I've been back to the doctor to discuss my recent bloods (not my usual doctor of course, can never get to see her lately). It appears the Gamma GT enzyme in my liver is high (140) and it should be around 55.
The doctor then proceeded to tell me that I need to stop having too much alcohol, I nearly hit her!!!
Urrgh!!! I was so mad. I don't drink excessively. I'll have a glass of wine if I go out (which) is rare and I always drive so I can leave if I get tired. And, I don't drink at home unless I have a friend around and even then, it's a glass. The last time I had a drink was in June at my mum's birthday party and the blood test was last week. It is NOT alcohol and I'm furious that she just "said it" and didn't even ask if I drank.
She soooo didn't believe me. I have to go for an ultrasound as I've had excessive bleeding and have to go back after the scan. Before I go back - can anyone advise on what the cause of the Gamma GT high score might be? Medication? Other? Have any of your guys had it?
I have Lupus, APS, Thyroid, CKD and am anaemic. Medications: prednislone, hydroxychoroquine, thyroxine, asprin, ferrous fumerate, folic acid, citalopram, calci-chew, vit d and painkillers.
FYI: Everything else was normal. Well, normal for me, and no different that the last blood test 3 months ago. Just this Gamma GT thing.
