Dear all, should i continue the multivitamins as vit a can be dangerous for my liver and currently I have high liver enzymes
Hi all, recently went for a general blood screening. everything is normal except for choloresterol and liver function was shocked that my cholesterol was high
Total choloresterol 259 mg/dl range is (140-200)
Total HDL ratio 5.2 range is < 4.0
LDL- Choresterol 181 mg/dl range <130
SGPT(ALT) 47 mu/ml range <30
SGOT(AST) 31mu/ml range <30
scheduled another full count / hep c blood test in november and ultrasound liver test to test for fatty liver
Should I be worried? I wonder what causes the elevate liver enzymes.
I am a smoker smoke about a pack a day and I am not fat my height is 174 metres and 64 kilograms.
I wonder if the cholesterol plays a part in the elevated liver enzymes. I was adviced to cut down junk food and red meat and eat more veggies.
I have been taking( blackmores )multivitamins/ vit c 500 mg / fish oil /probiotics/ milk thistle.
I suspect is the multivitamins and fish oil causes higher liver enzymes as it stays in the liver and caused the liver to work harder? should i stop taking or continue the supplements. I do not have hep A and B and awaiting for hep c test in november. please advise me
