number is 6 over the norm. Need an abdominal sonogram. Freaking out. Gallbladder issues? Any thoughts? Been on abx for 9 months. Number was always in normal range until now.

Could be side-effect of abx., which are known to elevate liver enzymes and/or mess with gallbladder. Also could be an indication of low-level/chronic pancreatitis. Glad you are going in for abdominal ultra-sound.
