I got a call from my doctor yesterday snd she tells me she can't sign off on my physical to allow me to the Police Academy b/c I need some additional blood work due to Elevated Liver Enzymes......what the heck does that mean, I eat well am not a big drinker....(yeah I enjoy a couple when cooking out) but nothing out of the ordinary, and that I had some protein on my stomach after fasting fro 16 hours and so she wants to give me an ultrasound on my stomach. Does anyone know what this could mean or what would cause this?

Not real happy about this as it may hinder all of my hard work to get into the academy and also I ma a little worried about my health now......anyone that can help, please inform me. Thank you

Matt,
Sorry to hear the bad news. I was once told that my elevated bellirubin levels were the results of Gilbert's syndrome. Nothing to worry about, just happens. I don't know if this is similar to what you were told.
Since others with more knowledge may be of more help, I'll get out of the way now.

Matt, your doctor would probably know this, but some liver enzymes (B.U.N.)are normally elevated from training.

Brian is right. Liver enzymes post exercise can look akin to acute liver failure. Matt, if you are young and healthy it is likely nothing. Dietary changes, stress and as previously mentioned exercise can greatly effect liver enzymes.

Keep us posted

Thanks guys for your posts' I have to go Monday and see whats up so I will post when I know something. I have been under tremendous stress about getting into the Academy and a bit sick , not to mention I have not had much water to drink these past 3 weeks so maybe these are all contributing factors. Thanks again y'all for posting.

I have slightly high bilirubin levels myself and have for years with no noticeable effects.

I got this from the web: Bilirubin is the waste product that results from the breakdown of hemoglobin molecules from worn out red blood cells. Ordinarily, it is excreted from the body as the chief component of bile. Excessive levels of bilirubin stain the fatty tissues in the skin yellow; this condition is called jaundice.
