are you referring to high liver enzymes? if this is the case it can be caused from meds or being overweight.

I had that result whilst on antidepressants. It took quite a while to clear up.

Sorry to hear this Ally x.
Have they advised anything in what you can do to help yourself? And will you be treated? Or is it something that needs to be left? I have no idea x

my liver function tests have been coming back as abnormal for the past 3 years, theyve done nothing about this, nor have I. I did watch a good programme the other day that said if its due to obesity, you only need to lose 5-10% of your body weight for this to return to normal. The liver does eventually heal itself if you do what you can to sort it out.

I have this and have had it before. I am being sent for a scan. I am sure I have been for one before. I am on Lithium and Citalopram (sp). I also take sleepers, but they are being changed so fast now...lol! I will be back at the GP tomorrow for the latest ones.

I know when I was first diagnosed bipolar back in 95 and was in the local asylum. They did say I had some type of liver damage, due to the meds I had been on while in, not sure which except Haloperido(sp). They said it was okay though and would regenerate itself?l I was too depressed to care so assume it did regenerate itself - very confusing!

Take care xxx:)
