My husband, who is 35, just got a physical with blood tests
taken. The results showed he has an elevated liver enzyme.
The nurse said it was "no big deal" that he must drink every
now and again. Well, I feel my husband drinks a lot, and the
reason he got the physical done is because I thought he was
drinking much more, and with that came symptoms of cramping,
cold sweats, headaches, and nauseation. These symptoms were
happening when he wasn't drinking. Now he says he can't
drink beer anymore because he has been feeling really sick when
he drinks it. Now he has switched to the hard stuff. I don't know
what an elevated liver enzyme is and neither does he, but since
the nurse blew it off, so has he. His father is an alcoholic
with cirrhosis of the liver, and I'm afaid my husband is headed
in the same direction. Should I be concerned?
