    Absolutely not. He's not lying. You probably have elevated liver enzymes. They can be high due to any number of things, the vast majority of which are extremely minor. Even having had a cold a month ago can raise them. Being one of the most sensitive markers, they are pretty much only medically useful as a contrast in narrowing a diagnosis. (when a patient is sick but their LFTs are normal, you can rule things out)

      yeah he didn't seem worried at all told me to come back in 6 weeks and redo them if it's still high or the same as before then they will book me in for a scan so hopefully come 23rd march my bloods will be okay.

    It sounds as though you are letting your imagination run away with you.

    He might want to discuss your lifestyle with you and ask questions to ascertain why your results are abnormal.

    Let me know how you get on and, good luck.

      the doctor didn't seem to worried about my bloods just told me it's not that high we will redo the bloods in 6 weeks if the results are the same or higher we will send you for a scan of the liver if it's normal then everything's fine.

      I did however get told i have a stomach bug called H-Pylori and was given a weeks course of  Antibiotics to get rid of it but don't feel any different.

      But as i say the odd bit of blood on stool and mucus can't be to concerning for the doctors as when the community doctor rang to give me my bloods he i asked him if it was anything life threatning because when the doctor rings you something aint right and he told me no there is nothing cancerous nothing life threatning so does that mean they would of tested for cancerous sells in my stool and blood samples?
