Sorry kind of long.
I am on some meds that might be causing me liver damage. My last blood work show my liver panel had risen on 3 datagories 10-25 points higher then normal range. I have had numerous blood work done since July of 2008 everything normal range.. Except Platelets.. That is from the AS .. I am supposed to start treatment (Enbrel) for my AS and my question is..
Family doctor says to wait on the treatments so that we can find out why my liver panel is high..
RA doctor says to go ahead with the treaments knowing that my liver panel is high.
I will be seeing a Gastro the same day I see my RA this week....... Not sure whose side to take? My opinion is I should wait to see exactly what it is that is making my liver panel high????
I really don't know, did you tell you family doctor what your RA doctor recommended? A family doctor deals with a larger spectrum of issue's and a RA is more specialized.
