hi all, I am new to the forum and have read through some of the posts and it seems as though there is a lot of knowledge here. So put on your thinking caps please, I need to pick your brain!!
Firstly, I am 48yo female, type 2 diabetic, diagnosed in 2005 and was put on metformin to assist my diet and exercise program in lowering my blood glucose levels. It worked for a while. However in September of 2007, my blood sugar levels were out of control and I was put on Glucutrol along with the metformin. I also had blood testing done and my liver enzymes came back high(SGOT and SGPT were 10 times high normal). Doc sent me to for abdominal u/s, found a gall stone approx 1" in diameter, but gall bladder is functioning normally(had hydascan). More blood work, SGOT and SGPT are now 20 times high normal. Doc then sent me to gastro who told me to discontinue the metformin. Stay on glucutrol. SGOT and SGPT started coming back down, within 2 months were only 2X high normal. Then 6 weeks later had blood work repeated, SGOT and SGPT are 10X high normal again. No change in medicine, no over the counter meds at all and absolutely no drinking.
Can anyone help me figure this out?? Is this all due to my diabetes?? Had all the hep panels ran as well, they all came back negative, even autoimmune. My mind is boggled!!
Let me know what you think. Thank you.
