Serendipity : You may have several unrelated problems. Most gallstones are cholesterol stones and are associated with rapid weight loss. A transient elevation in liver enzymes can occur when a gallstone passes through the common bile duct. If your symptoms are related to fatty or fried food, ask your doctor for an ultrasound or hida scan. The egfr is a concern. Have the test repeated before additional tests.
