just got a letter from my GI's office that my last blood test 2 weeks ago showed higher liver enzymes, but not to worry b/c that can sometimes happen (I did have a couple mai tai's the night before) and to contact them to schedule another blood test in the next couple weeks (I was going every 3 mos before).

Beth, I had eleveated liver enzymes in February and my nurse practitioner told me not to worry about it. When I had my blood drawn again in April, everything was back to normal.
