    Liver biopsy

    I was having problems with high liver enzymes and saw a gastro doctor . He wants to do a liver biopsy because my anti mitochondrial anti body test came back high at 68.1. Normal levels are 0-20. I don't have any symptoms of what he is saying i might have and almost all the symptoms of lupus. I've already been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I'm pretty sure I just have fatty liver disease based on reading and fecal pictures. I understand im not a doctor and shouldn't think I know more than a doctor, however I feel he is absolutely wrong on this.

    He has been a doctor 25 years and I've only seen him the one time. I don't completely have faith in him.

    If you were in my situation would you get the liver biopsy ?

    Yep, get a second opinion ... in the meantime, glutathione (or NAC) and Choline/Inositol can help flush the system and likely lower enzymes. But if you have an underlying condition and its not caused by substances, then the physicians can help with that aspect.

    I would, why not? Any invasive things I can have done, I will. Relying on blood-work alone is not smart, blood work is only an overview.
    Those who rely only on it alone are not smart. Meadows used to post pics of his perfect bloodwork, then almost died from clots/heart attack.
    (Same with a friend of mine, didnt post pics, but you know here im getting at). Perfect bloods, never smoked, drank or touched anabolics.
    Triple-bypass, almost died.

    Thats just me, but I would want to know all I could.

    My sister is dealing with this as we speak, she went yesterday

    Never used anabolics, no drugs or drinking.

    I have her on some Nac/gluathione and liv52 which is very regarded in the medical community for repairing the liver. I literally just sent her a care pack yesterday to help her out.

    Let me know if you need some Liv52. PM me and I can send you some, on me, to help you improve your numbers and good luck with the imaging.

    My liver is improved it was 43/124 . The ALT was the 124.. I ordered from you already and got the pack. My doctor said to wait until Friday ( more blood work ) to see how my liver is . In 10 days it went up about 5x the normal for each then in 9 days it dropped .I really don't understand what caused this . I personally think it was the weed being laced with Paxil and Prozac. I'm not sure but I've quit smoking weed , quit pain pills , changed diet and I am holding steady between 218-223 for weight .

    Pretty much detoxed from everything , not even having caffeine . Lots of grapes, apple sauce , bananas and oatmeal .

    Sam i can't pm yet , but I've been tested 3x for hepatitis in the past 4 weeks . Had ultrasound of liver and bile ducts. Ct scan of stomach, chest x ray , chest ct , stress test ( chemical induced ) along with multiple ekg.

    I am pretty sure I don't have transferable hepatitis .
