New to this site and wanted to see if I could get some input. I went to the Dr. and was told I had abcessed tonsils. Since it was time for my yearly blood work, he ordered it and i had it done that day. Went back to the Dr. 3 weeks later and he said everything was good except my liver enzymes were elevated, which they never have been before. He ordered more blood work and I went back the following week. AST was down to 42 & ALT was down to 74 but he was concerned because my ferritin was 830. He sent me to a GI doc and who is having me geneticaly tested for hemochromatosis, never heard of it brfore then. My question would be, if anyone knows, wouldn't the abcess tonsil infection result in these kind of test numbers? Just hoping these tests were a fluke and not hemo.
