A 34-year-old male asked:
i have a liver enzyme of 8000 for a couple of months currently taking something to get rid of the iron. how much damage has this caused if any?

Tricky: The liver heals up. 8000 is a high number indicating significant damage. It is the scarring that causes liver disfunction and measuring liver function by its ability to make proteins is a better indicator of its function right now.
