After having a colonoscpy and endoscopy I have been told I have celiacs from biopsies. Got bloods taken the other day and my iron is low which i new would be the case but my liver enzyme is very slight raised and now im panicking over this. My gp said it was nothing to worry about and in keeping with recently diagnosed celiac disease. Anybody experience slightly high liver enzymes ? I start my gluten free diet today.

    Hi  Hopefully by this you are noticing a difference after going gluten free. Undiagnosed coeliacs become deficient in vitamins and minerals. . and  often need to take supplements especially calcium, magnesium and vitamin B12 (which will help lower the enzymes).  Also cut out alcohol, smoking, processed foods and sugar (use honey or stevia). Eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, especially garlic, leafy greens, apple, carrots and grapefruit. Cut back on beef. Eat more fish, poultry, nuts, beans, legumes and low fat dairy.

      Thanks i just wanted to make sure the ast liver enzyme very slightly raised is quite a normal thing with newly diagnosed celiacs. All my other liver bloods where normal.

    Have you had your bloods retested? Has the GF diet helped with the elevated liver enzymes? I had similar results pre coeliac diagnosis.
