Blood test results


Hi everyone. After a nervous 24 hour wait I got my blood test results. Liver and kidney function ok but ggt (liver enzyme) was slightly high at 44. However I found out I've got an unusually high platelet count which could indicate something more serious so I'm pretty upset and anxious about that. Not going to drink though.

Hi SN

I don't know what that means but I'm willing to bet it gets better with some sober time

You'll be ok

Hi SN-

Grats on your sobriety! I was curious how long you waited before going in for bloodwork?

Congrats on taking action and getting a check up. I understand you have some concerns, but drinking can't be an option. I'm confident you'll come out the other side just fine. Keep it going.

I'm sure if anything was of concern, your doc will get in contact with you.

I know a lot of folks who had elevated liver enzymes and after a few months off the booze, the levels were normal. It is common.
