Hi I was just wondering if being on difulcan could have caused my liver enzymes to become slightly elevated to 72 U/L (normal is 48 U/L) I had a white coating on my tongue and they thought it was thrush and treated me with diflucan it turned out not be thrush and they aren't sure what it is but I was wondering if this could have caused the elevated liver enzymes that showed up on my blood tests. Thanks !
You have a lab range that I can't relate to for liver function.
Maybe you're not in US? You would be looking for something like
GGT/ALT/AST on report. I'm surprised a Dr would order labs
knowing you were taking Diflucan. You should be fasting 12 hrs.
before the bloodwk to get correct reading of liver. Maybe
someone goofed. Answer is yes. It would throw test off along w/
anything that was run. You can get a coated tongue from a
response to foods that disagree w/ you or old bacteria off your
toothbrush. Get a new one or may get problem back.
