Amid all my hollering about my insurance changing - I forgot a very important point: My two liver panel test that were elevated are coming back down. One is in normal range already. The second one is just about 2 points above normal, but close to good again. She said next week may be the last test we'll need. She couldn't confirm whether a virus did it or not, but she said it is just good that it went back down. So, yay. Good news. scool

That is wonderful news Chick!!! Just knowing they are back down is a GOOD feeling.

My liver enzynes are up again, but I suspect they will be down when I go back in
a couple of weeks. That is pretty common for me...up, and down, but I'm thankful
that they do eventually get down again.

So yay it is good news!!! Hugs, Robin

Thanks everyone. :)

Robin - I hope yours goes back down quickly, too. I was reading that the liver is really excellent at healing itself. I never knew! A friend of my b/f was a severe alcoholic and also did a lot of drugs in his days - and his liver was so shot they said he might not make it for a while. Would you believe the thing HEALED? The body really can heal. Will keep sending good vibes for yours.

Yes Chickie the liver is an amazing organ. Be careful with the tylenol and any medications that end with "cet"....percocet, darvocet, ect.

I had a major problem with elevated liver enzymes for years until I was finally diagnosed with hepatitis C. I treated and cleared the live virus. I will always have positive antibodies just like when someone has chicken pox. My enzymes are now at 17 and 18 which is great.

Good deal on the lower enzymes for you
