Hi....you must get in to see a GI and save the liver biopsy until you have at least had non-invasive tests such as the ultrasound and an MRCP.
The increase of enzymes can be because of a few things...which ones exactly are increased?
Get a copy of the blood test results for your records.
I hope your doctor also does other tests such as autoimmune markers, cancer markers..etc.
I have had elevated liver enzymes and was eventually diagnosed with UC-related liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. The MRCP showed it, but my blood tests show PRimary Biliary Chirrosis....don't know if one can have both, but I refuse to have the invasive test for a non-curable disease that can cause accelleration or infection.
This site could help regarding the blood tests, why they're done, what others should also be done if they're increased., etc.
Do the homework.
Welcome to the forum!
Hang tough, you'll be in for a bumpy ride while going through the process to find out what's going on....
