I just got back from the Dr. for some testing due to some adrenal adenomas on my adrenal gland. I was told that my liver enzymes were elevated. He even called in a liver specialist, and he ordered a ultrasound of my liver immediately. He stated that he wanted to order a bunch of tests soon. I listed his suggested tests below. Anyway, I remembered that back in January I had bloodwork done and my pcp told me then that my liver enzymes were elevated also. Then back in 1995 I my doctor told me that I had some liver damage according to some blood tests that I had done at that time, but I didn't really think much about it.
Some of the problems I suffer from are: Extreme weight gain. I am so exhausted all the time. I am getting so forgetful and having some severe memory problems. My palms stay blood red and spotty all the time and I bruise very easy. I stay gassy and bloated no matter what I eat or don't eat. Slight burning & puffy sensation in face, especially around my eyes. Constant backaches and various joint aches. It takes me forever to heal a sore or to get over any illness. I have never donated blood, shot up with anything, or had any transfusions that I know of.

The Dr. has me on the following:
Premarin - 0.625mg
Levothyroxine - .50mg
Wellbutron - 150mg

After I got home I dug out the lab report I got from my doctor last January and this is some of the abnormal results...

Cholesterol 245
AST (SGOT) 19
ALT (SGPT) 49
Alkaline Phosphatase 128
GGTP 85
LDL Chol(Calculated) 169
LDL/HDL Ratio 3.3
Cholest/HDL Ratio 4.7
DIFFERENTIAL - Segmented Neut 65.3% (6079)

The liver doctor suggested the following:

1. Check: anti-HAV IgG, HBsAg, anti-HBc, anti-HBs, HCV EIA.
2. ANA, anti-mitochondrial antibody, alpha-1-antitrypsin
3. Fe, transferrin, saturation, ferritin, ceruloplasmin
4. Image liver with upper abdominal ultrasound
5. Vaccinate if negative to hepatitis A and/or B
