Re: High liver function result..

Hi sarah
Our bodies are dynamic, and the liver is the powerhouse cleaning us up. Have you seen your GP? do you take any supplements - herbal / chinese medicines, regular medicines over the counter - paracetamol / ibuprofen, antihistamines etc, do you drink alcohol every day? Have you been unwell recently, are you someone who only drinks minimal water? This is not a judgement on your life but a pointer of factors that may upset your liver. When were any bloods last taken looking at the liver. A retest is likely to be suggested, but also go with all this info when you see your GP.

Hi sarah63

 

I'm sorry to read you're having such a worrying time.  May I suggest that as well as the information and support you receive here you might find helpful to talk things through with your GP or a member of staff on the BCC helpline.  Here you can share your thoughts and concerns with someone who will offer you a listening ear as well as emotional support and practical information.  The number to call is 0808 800 6000 and lines are open weekdays 9 to 5pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.

Re: High liver function result..

Hi sarah, sorry about your liver function test. I had this in 2013 and unfortunately it was because it had gone to my liver. Please try not to worry as it may be rised because of other reasons. The doctor did a LFT test for 3 weeks running but it did not go down. I was then taken into hospital because I felt so ill , tired, sweats, and honestly thought I had a virus. After a cat scan it revealed it was liver and bone cancer. I previously had BC in 2007 and was fine till 2013. On a good note I am now 2 years down the line and doing fine. Hope this does not unset you to much and look on the positive side it may not be anything to worry about xxx
