So, I've been reading and trying to search for people like me, but I thought maybe it would be easier if I just posted.
I'm new here! HI!
My story started in September 2017. I had routine bloodwork done. My ALT was 32(normal <29). My cholesterol tests were also slightly elevated. I was getting a virus at that time.
Retested 1 month later and AST was now high at 38 (normal <30) and AST was now 58. I told the dr. that I had taken antibiotics between the tests, but I was sent for ultrasound anyway.
Had ultrasound with showed a small nodule. So, I was sent to Gastroenterologist.
GI doctor sent me to MRI and retested labs again in December. That blood came back normal AST, ALT, high ferritin (648, normal is < 150) and M2 was 26.6(normal <20). MRI showed hemangioma. Doctor said that my previously elevated AST and ALT could have been due to virus and antibiotics.
So, had more blood tests in January. They did not retest the ferritin. M2 was now 58. Hemochromatosis test was negative.
So, doctor wants to put me on Urso, but with what I've read, I don't know if I want to or need to take it.
Is there harm in taking Urso before you should any symptoms or elevated tests other than high AMA?
Thanks for reading.
