Hi, I'm alcohol dependent. I had a blood test in september and my liver enzymes were 354 for AST and 234 for ALT, ggt was raised too but can't remember the number and bilirubin was fine.The nurse said they would go down after detox but my gp said I might have cirrhosis and has booked me in for an ultrasound next month.
I'm very scared. I had an ultrasound last april and all was fine but a fatty liver. Also had gastroctopy and was fine.
My fasting lft results over the past few years have been normal or just slightly raised.
My liver in February this year was only 64 and this was taken first thing in the morning but this September result was taken in the evening by the alcohol services after I had drank almost half a bottle of vodka so I don't think the results are accurate.
How could I develop cirrhosis after normal ultrasound last year and normal bloods in February this year?
