I was told I have a high liver count even after stopping simistaten for 8 week, I do not drink more than 1 or 2 times a month what do they do to change these high ##

If : If your liver enzymes are elevated due to the simvastatin, and you have been off of it for 8 weeks then your doctor should expect a decrease. The numbers may not be normal yet but they should be trending down. If they have not changed, then other things need to be ruled out, hepatitis or high triglycerides for example.

High liver count due to alochol, now normal. Had 2 days of alcohol after that. Test 2 days later normal. But weird bloated feeling. Enlarged ?

Liver and Alcohol: This is very consistent to the damage that can be done by alcohol and how the liver can bounce back. But, abusing your liver again makes me wonder how many times you will get away with experimenting with it's health. The second set of labs after drinking for two days may very well have been too early for accuracy. The bloating and swollen liver is exactly what should be happening. ...Read more

Low iron, high liver enzymes, high absolute monocytes count.. Any correlation?

No: The absolute monocyte count seldom tells us much in isolation. If by "low iron" you mean a low serum iron, you need it interpreted; if by "low iron" you mean a low hemoglobin / hematocrit, you are anemic and this is serious. High liver enzymes require a workup for alcohol and drug toxicity, hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's & others. Never focus just on labs. ...Read more
