Question ID: 335288
On a routine blood test and several follow-up blood tests my doctor found that I had elevated liver enzyems. A liver scan was normal. and all other tests were normal except a pepidea CCK scan showed that my gall bladder was not functioning properly ("failed to contract after being "challenged with CCK") I have put myself on a vegetable and fruit juice diet and am drinking various teas, to detox and lose about 20 pounds. I have rarely eatten fats, meat or sugar. I am sensitive to chemicals. I have been on Zetia to lower cholesterol,(it worked) but have discontinued it since this diagnosis. Can a gall bladder be reactivated? What can cause elevated liver enzymes? Any suggestions for alternative remedies? Although I feel healthy I wonder what lies ahead.

birale, Your physician should have gone over the values on your test ans well as action to be taken. Some cholesterol lowering drugs do cause an elevated liver enzyme test requireing cessation. However a baseline test would have been done and compared. If you stopped the offending drug, the test should return to normal. One test would not be enough though. You should talk with your doctor, if you dont like or trust him, change to another. These are questiuons easily answered by him (heR). Dr.T
