Liver Enzymes

Posted by

I'm totally confused!!! I recently went to the doctor becuase of being very tired and unable to sleep. He then did a routine blood test that indicated that my liver enzymes were elavated and also my white blood count. ALT was 164, AST was 74 and GGT was 88. WBC was 15.8. Within a weeks time I was in the emergengy room with severe pain on the right side under my breast which moved to the center of my back. Another blood test done showed even more elavation in my enzymes ALT 219 AST 92. White blood count went down to 10.7, At this time a hepatitis test is being done. Can anyone please explain to me what all this means?
Thanks,
Confused

I am not a doctor, but I have the very exact pains as you have. I also have Hepatitis C. HepC is becoming an epidemic and you should definately be tested for it, especially if your enzymes are elevated. It is spread by blood tranfusions prior to 1992, IV drug use, tatoos, and body piercing. 40% of the people who have it don't fall into any category, but it is only transferred from blood to blood contact.

As far as the pain, I am still working with doctors who are trying to figure out what my pain is. They say that the liver doesn't produce the kind the kind of pain I am speaking of, yet, a lot of people in my support group have URQ (upper right quadrant pain) that I have. HMMMM..............

Sorry I can't be of more help. I would also like to know for sure what my pain is.

Hi, Christina.

Your lab tests are primitive in the extreme. They are liver death tests and NOT "liver function tests" as they are falsely called. Next, they mean little without the normals for that lab posted with them.

This could easily be an inflammed gallbladder which is caused by the same things that cause LGS. See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

If your hepatitis tests are negative, if I were you, I would do a gallbladder flush and start Cayce's Castor Oil Packs to the liver every day till the symptoms are gone. If they are positive, let us know because there is a safe and effective solution to the hepatitis virus.

Dr. Stoll,
I did forget to mention that my galbladder was removed 13 yrs. ago. So I know that it is not my galbladder. Maybe that is why I am so confused. Thank you for your answer but I'm still confused.

Thank you Julene for your message. At least i know that I'm not nuts!!!! I know that this pain is real and hopefully will get the results of my Hepatitis test soon, maybe tomorrow, I do pray that it is not Hepatitis, and if it isn't, I'm almost scared to find out why this is happening.

Thanks again,
Christina

Thanks, Julene.

ANYONE (medical) knows that ANYTHING that causes swelling of the liver produces EXACTLY this kind of pain. One of the first things we are taught in pathology and anatomy is about "referred pain" from internal organs.

The nerve endings for the liver are in the capsule of the liver and the liver cannot swell at all without stretching that capsule. Docs who have forgotten that are not well enough educated for you to entrust your life and health to.

This is not "rocket science"! You can go to your library and look up atlases of "referred pain".

By the way, in MY experience, 100 grams of intravenous vitamin C daily for 5 to 10 treatments over a couple of weeks, is nearly 100% effective in resolving any viral infestation of the liver. This has been discussed on this BB for years. Call the physician who discovered this for someone in you area competent and knowledgable about doing this: Robert Cathcart, MD at (415) 949-2822.

Let us know how you do.

Walt

Christina,

Did you ever think that your gallbladder problem was just the beginning of a liver problem? Removing the gallbladder, without doing anything about WHY you had the surgery, just allowed the causes to continue until you have what you have now.
