I've been eating 6 egg whites and 2 whole eggs for a very long time at breakfast... never been a problem until I recently received my bloodwork results. Apparently liver analysis was elevated (she didn't specify further) but mentioned that it can happen after a night of drinking (which I didn't) or maybe from fasting (which I had for the test).... regardless, is 8 eggs every day excessive? I'm starting to lean towards "yes"...

thanks

Frank,
Always, always get copies of your lab results. Keep a medical file on yourself at home--this way you can switch doctors at any time, for any reason, without any hassle or excessive "fees" for simply copying your file.

You want to know which liver enzyme(s) were elevated and by how much.

The fastest way to develop a food allergy is to eat a lot of a particular food every day. As to whether or not this is the issue in this case, I can't say. Besides, the yolk is the most nutritious part of the egg, why waste it?

Anyway, get the copies of the lab, do some research on your own, see what you come up with.

From the uneducated standpoint...I had been eating quite a few eggs a couple months back. Actually, it was a lot of eggs in the morning for quite some time.

About two or three weeks ago I had a 3 egg scramble for breakfast and then went to work....felt sick most of the day. Next morning, same thing, felt sick a little longer...the next day I decided to not eat eggs and low and behold felt fine. I haven't eaten them since, I think I just ate way too many, too often.

Eggs have a lot of cholesterol. Wash it down with oatmeal.

Don't worry about the cholesterol...search around here to see why it's not an issue. Stick to not washing it down with oatmeal.

Frank,
To save everyone else the work, look on the web for associated reasons why the liver enzymes may be elevated, then think about your situation. This isn't the place for a full medical intake and you will learn something in the process. More alcohol consumption than your liver would like could explain any/all of those levels.

As for the blood "fats", I really don't see much of an issue that I'd want to cover in an open forum.
