Mtraynor,

I'm sorry you are having so many problems and hope the investigations don't show any alarming results.

You can get advice and support about hyperparathyroidism from hyperparathyroid.org.uk/

Make sure that you get a full workup beyond focus on the tumor. You may have multiple things going on.

What kind of deranged liver results? AST, ALT, GGT, serum ferritin?

Hi it's my ALT that's elevated I got good news today I don't have a tumour it was a lump of fat within the liver but ALT is still raised antibodies came back negative but consultant hasent ruled this out if ALT doesent settle he will take a biopsy to confirm if auto immuneincidental finding on CT shown a abnormality on the kidney So apart from knowing I haven't got a tumour I'm not much wiser

Are you taking a statin, which could raise your ALT level?

Have you had your mouth ulcers checked for bullous pemphigoid (another damned autoimmune condition)?

Best wishes!

Have you looked for heavy metal or mold toxicity? Or infections, like herpes family, or c. or m. pneumoniae?

They could stress liver and/or kidneys.

Also, are you on a low fat, high carb, or vegetarian diet?
