Cholestyramine absorbs bile, but these symptoms will often resolve over time. ...Read more

I have elevated liver enzyme ast(sgot)412 ALT (sgpt) 317  GGT 186 dilation of the common bile duct 1 CM no gallbladder?

Can be due to many reasons, including medications like statins. An elevated GGT suggest biliary problems, but is not that specific. The normal common bile duct measures less than 0.8 cm, but after the gb is removed, can be 1cm. Complete history needed for this. ...Read more
