You're NEVER a pain...it's important to hear all sides of this story. I know Jimmy hasn't had any liver issues, either. Dim's wife is the only woman I've read about on the boards who has had elevated liver enzymes. The profile is typically men/larger body mass.
I've seen guys mention it on other MS boards, and no one ever has a good explanation. From what I understand, once patients are on interferon treatment, liver testing is de riguer. Not so much with copaxone. Our GP tests regularly now since Jeff showed up with high liver enzymes at MS diagnosis. But they've been fine since, and he's on more medication and supplements than before (he wasn't taking anything when the enzymes were high and he was jaundiced)...which is contrary.
Here is the high liver enzyme hit list....
Side effect of medication, such as certain nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), cholesterol medications, antibiotics or anti-seizure medications
Infection, such as viral hepatitis and mononucleosis
Autoimmune disorders of the liver and bile ducts, such as autoimmune hepatitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis or primary biliary cirrhosis
Metabolic liver disease, such as hemochromatosis or Wilson's disease
Excessive use of certain herbal supplements, such as kava, comfrey, pennyroyal or skullcap
Tumors of the liver, pancreas or bile ducts
Something that happened along with his first MS flare happened to his liver at the same time. What? Venous blockage? Iron buildup? EBV attack? There's a clue in all this-
