I am on number of meds for chronic pain and panic attacks ( percodan,fional,clonopin and visteral) I no longer take tylenol for tha was one med that caused a burning pins and needle bloated feeling on my right side of my adnomin.
My question is beside having the liver panels down. What other test can be done to tell how much liver damage I have?
My HMO MD keeps talking about liver failure and that transplants dont work....not helping my anxiety at all.
You do not provide any information regarding your age, family history of liver disease or your own lifestyle traits (e.g. use of alcohol, recreational drug use, tatoos. Knowing your weight would also be helpful in prioritizing the list of possible causes for the elevated liver tests. Fatty liver and alcohol-induced liver disease are two of the more common causes of nild asymptomatic elevations of liver tests. It is necessary, however, to exclude viral infection ( Heptitis A, B and C) by blood tests, autoimmune liver disease (blood tests) and metabolic causes (e.g. hemochromatosis , Wilsons's disease dpending on your age). Sometimes, a liver biopsy is required for definitive diagnosis.
