I have a question. What is the protocol if you have elevated liver enzymes before surgery. Will they still do it or not?

I'm guessing they will do more tests to see why it's elevated. I've seen it denied because of cirrhosis of the liver though.

I thought that the elevated enzymes were from having a fatty liver, but I'm not sure.  WLS and weightloss cure fatty liver.  It was suggested to me to take Milk Thistle to lower my levels and it has worked!

Milk Thistles is great for the liver . Dont get the cheap kind. This is something worth spending a little extra on and making sure it's good.
