Related Liver Problem?

I was diagnosed hypo in Feb and have been on 50mcg levo since end March (increased from 25 at first blood test). I have just had another blood test and GP has referred me for a liver scan as my Liver Function Test revealed that ALT is high. GP said I should stop drinking altogether (would say I was a moderate drinker but drinking more than recommended 14 units a week). Could there be a connection between the thyroid and liver problem? When I asked about my thyroid meds she said they didn't need to be increased and to stay on 50mcg with a retest in three months. A couple of weeks ago I had a whole weekend where I could hardly function for fatigue and had to spend most of the time in bed sleeping. Sorry if the above is a bit rambling but I'm confused - thyroid was the main problem as far as I was aware and this now seems to be insignificant to my GP!

Can you post your recent thyroid results and ranges? Undiagnosed and undertreated hypothyroidism can raise liver enzymes.


Hi Clutter

Was advised by GP on phone so plan to collect a print out of results Monday am and will post then - thanks
