I first went on this path to being diagnosed by a sudden spike in my liver function tests about 3 years ago. They gradually went back down to normal and have been in the normal to high normal range since then. Taking Urso. I happen to have seen two doctors in a couple of weeks - it's just that time of year when they want me to come in for check ups. Both doctors ran blood work and there was an overlap - had my lfts done twice. The first set of bloodwork was for my gastroenterologist. My liver numbers were somewhat raised from last spring but not alarmingly. Then 2 1/2 weeks later, for my primary doctor, I had blood work again and my lfts went from in the 50's to over 300 - in two weeks! Has anyone else ever had this? Both doctors are on vacation this week so I can't talk to anyone. Anything I can find on line speaks to alcohol consumption. ( I never drink) New medications - nope. And other underlying factors - all of which lead down the road to cancer of something. I stopped reading. I can say that I was under extreme stress during that two week period. I would love to think that this spike was just the stress which I have now gotten under control.
Has anyone else experienced a gigantic spike like this and did you ever get any answers? I know I never did four years ago. We just did one test after another that eventually led to the PBC diagnosis. My doctor also thinks I have an overlap of Autoimmune Hepatits but we are only treating the PBC with urso at this point.
