Ok so I am on TPN, and My liver enzymes were getting high.

I bought Milk Thistle Suppliments. 2 weeks in a row now they have improved.
I got results back today and my ALT is 21 and AST is all the way down to 86.

I think it's REALLY helpin.
I know were all different, But if you ever feel the need to try i recommend it. :-)

Debilitated, please DO NOT take milk thistle without consulting with your doctors and your pharmacist first.

Milk thistle is processed along the same pathways as your other medications; overload that pathway, and you can reduce the ability of your body to process your real meds. You're on a heavy medication regime already: be careful, and consult with SENIOR, expert, professionals before you experiment with OTC medicines.
