Im Generally healthy, have a Jpouch that behaves and a normal healthy diet (i eat everything).
Feeling a little rundown lately so I decided to get my bloods tested using a private blood screening company (thriva.co). Pretty much all my results came back text book (not bad for a 44yo), but there were 3 results out of norm
Firstly my Omega 3 / 6 ratio was about 1:20 and my CRP (Inflammation marker) was high.. Not concerning, but elevated. I researched and found that too much omega 6 is bad for inflammation, so took steps to address the balance. My ratio is currently 1/6 which is much better and my CRP inflammation marker is back in optimal range.
More concerning is my liver function (GammaGT) was elevated, although all other liver enzyme tests were fine, so i ingored it as a 'blip'. A 2nd Thriva test was done 3 months later and Gamma GT had risen again, still all other liver function tests are fine. I went to my GP with my concerns, who took my bloods and said everything was fine and i shouldnt put too much faith in these private companies.
Ive just done a 3rd test with thriva and again everything is fine but my Gamma GT is even higher still. Thriva says this idicates liver is working hard, possibly due to drugs or alcohol intake. Im on 2 x loperopmide daily and drink minimally (certainly less than 10 units a week).
ive seen another link on here https://www.j-pouch.org/topic/poor-liver-function which suggests there is a link between liver function and bowel issues, but its not something ive heard of. Anyone got any experience or thoughts here please?
