I have had pain in my liver area for years and it generally worsens around that time of the month. Since, March of last year I've been diagnosed with anemia and then subsequently with Endometriosis/Adenomyosis. Later, elevated blood calcium led to a diagnoses of hyperparathyroid to which I had removed in Sep. and also Hashimotos. I also have low vitamin D. I had some elevation in ALP but blamed it on the parathyroid it can cause this to be elevated too, but then after a successful surgery my liver enzymes was again elevated and this time so was the ALT and AST. However the most recent bloodwork was normal and liver results yesterday showed no signs of PBC. The DR. Has said that 5% (I think?) of people can have false positives with other liver disease, but AMA M2 I know is highly specific for PBC and he even said that biopsy's can depend on what part of the liver the sample was taken from. Has this happened to anyone else and should I even be worried about the potential of later down the road of developing PBC. He wants to monitor my bloodwork every 6 months and he mentioned the AMA + could have been a false positive, but I also know that I have some of the co morbid conditions that go with that. Are false positives common with other liver diseases. I also have positive C-RP and an elevated tumor marker that goes along with liver but can't remember what it was. Any advice is appreciated...thanks!
