Yup, however you might wanna make sure and wait for another person here to confirm it as I am unsure of myself. Better yet, why don't you ask the Medifast guys because they can give you an answer better...
No, there's no nurse at the gastro's rooms. The options are to wait til I see him in a month, or.
A message for him to call me. I suspect there's not much he could give me anyway... might just be a case of wait for liver to repair itself maybe :-/..
I wouldn't be worried unless your GI is concerned..
I wouldn't let another doctor who is not a GI doctor interpret test results for me. Even my regular doc defers to my GI doc when discussing any of my liver / GI tests..
I think she's really irresponsible for doing that. If you'd had cancer, would she interpret your results for you as well? That's crap. You being in a panic keeps her in business. So, I'd call her and ask her what she meant by that and what she suggests that you do..
Sorry for coming across so strong, but geez, I can't help but wonder what she thought she was accomplishing saying that...
Try to see a GI even if it isn't your normal one(maybe someone they are in practice with)..
Your liver processes most meds you are on, helps recycle the hemoglobin off your RB cells, helps the pancreas in glycogenolysis / glycogenesis, produces bile to emulsify fats, and helps breakdown proteins, etc, etc. It is the work horse of your body. So if you are worried about the health of your liver(thus yourself) then until you see a doc you could try to make it's life easier..
* Do not take any Unnecessary meds ie asprin.
* Reduce intake of carbs/sugar and NON-essential fatty acids (cake, chips and candy bars).
++Examples of Essential fatty acids you SHOULD take are flaxseed oil, fish/fishoil, nuts and UNcooked olive oil..
*DO eat more spinach, artichokes,.
, NAC, water (all very good for your liver).
* Plus eat nuts, fruits and veggies with healthy lean meat ( ie fish, chicken)..
You can see a doc SOON. Best wishes,.
Rmb - yeah I was a bit annoyed, but I guess she stopped short of actually interpreting the results for me. I'm thinking that if the GI hasn't called me, then there's no need for me to panic just yet, and I'll take the opportunity to get stuck into dandelion and.
For the next few weeks and see what the GI says..
EP - what's NAC? I can't do the fruit, veggies and nuts at the moment. Just recovering this morning from a run-in with a sweet potato yesterday :S and nuts rip up my guts. Am sticking to the fish and chicken though, and trying to.
From sugars and gluten....
Thanks everyone - am feeling a bit less panicky today as I sit here with my large pot of dandelion tea :-)..
I would suggest LOTS of water and maybe some cranberry juice. I.
That you feel better soon...
Sometimes an abnormal blood test is something to worry about and other times it doesn't. Do your results have the boundaries of the "normal" range next to them?? If it does and if the results are slightly over I wouldn't worry too much, however if they are significantly over "normal" I would.
A message with your GI..
Hot water with lemon stimulates the liver and (apparently) is a natural cleanser...have one glass in the morning before you have Medifast food and it should help :).
I know it's easy to say but try not to worry - the.
Takes awhile to.
Your body but your liver will do it's job. I would suggest you don't have any alcohol (you probably can't tolerate it anyway) it will help the liver to detoxify more quickly if you don't drink alcohol. Take care, thinking of you, Thea..
I'm guessing your liver enzymes are elevated. But why is your psychiatrist.
Your blood tests? And why aren't you.
Your blood tests....they're not hard to read. Anything out of the normal range is abnormal and tests usually tell you what the normal range is, and what the abnormal range is. They also "flag" the abnormal reads, usually with an "A" for abnormal...
