No alcohol for 1 yr: Unfortunately with weight loss surgery, you become very sensitive to alcohol. It is due to the fact that your body surface area is much smaller plus your liver becomes much more sensitive to alcohol. So any kind of alcohol intake can be dangerous. I usually recommend that the patient wait at least 1 year before drinking any alcohol. Also alcohol has a lot of empty calories. ...Read more

Alt jumped from low 20's to 69 in about two years. Drink alcohol once a month but could this be from my biliary dyskinesia or sludge in my gallbladder?
Probably not, man: It's time to check you for hepatitis b and c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, and whether your alt returns to normal if you go off the bentyl (dicyclomine). An extreme athlete can have high alt from it, or there's plenty of non-alcoholic fatty liver even in young folks. While you're waiting, think about getting into a hard-core fitness-focused lifestyle. Best wishes. ...Read more
