How many of you that have CF, have a abnormal liver function test results?  Secondly, how bad does it get?  Thirdly, have you developed hepatitis or other major disease from having a abnormal liver function?
 
Have you had to do additional testing due to abnormal liver function bloodwork?

Hi twinstride, I don't have an answer to your question but abnormal liver tests are never wrong, nor are they anything to ignore !Yes abnormal liver tests do mean there is a problem with the liver. Please write all your questions down & make an appointment with your Dr. If you have any liver disease insist on seeing a hepatologist ASAP. Make sure any meds you are taking do not affect the liver or will not cause the dammage to worsen. My thoughts & prayers are with you. later....

did your kids have an adnormal liver test result? when they first tested me for cf, i had a pancreatic insuffiency/pancretitis,part of my liver was destroyed,damanged lungs. they recheck my liver like once every 6 mos,more of it is damanged, but they said thats is slowly getting damanged so im guessing to anwser one of your questions its a slow progress,however this is why i have such bad stomach pains and i have  to take pain meds for it. how old are ya kids again? i hope its gets better for them and for all of us with cf and maybe tomorrow there will be a cure!!!!!!!!

best of luck

Hi Tricia,

Sorry, its taking me a while to answer you back. They are 10 and hopefully soon, we will be seeing a doc for their abnormal liver functions.

Thanks again

Thank you Stephen.

I am afraid that my boys cat scan of lungs is not very good. I missed the call from the nurse on friday. She has some information from the doctor to give us....:(

Praying that the results were not too terribly bad of their lungs and the treatments they want to do will be easy on them.

Hi,

The cat scan results are in. There is minimal damage right now at 10 yrs old. The lung transplant coordinator/pulmonologist is a very aggressive doc, so therefore, he is starting some medication to keep the progression down in their lungs. We will take our first treatment in the office soon. I will let you know how things will turn out.

Hugs!
