    Hi charming,

    can you tell me the actual result of the AST? If you don't have the results, get them faxed/mailed to you...My doc ignored my high results saying it was due to fatty liver or hepatitis exposure, I always believed him til I became very ill...I was then tested for the heps and all negative, then he wanted to 'tap' my liver, no friggin way pal...I got rid of that creep and I now have my levels tested every few months to see how my dietary changes have been helping as well as omitting pharmaceuticals, BIG contributor to elevated liver enzymes...Most drugs are processed through and poison the liver as in my case, but he wouldn't advise me of that cause he knew I would stop the drugs, which I did

    Let me know the numbers and if I can help further...

    Peace~MamaDove
