What does it mean for liver disease to be parenchymal?

Ducts versus tissue

Abnormal_liver_tests
The biliary tree is a network of pipes running through the liver tissue. Liver disease can often be divided into those affecting the pipes versus those affecting the tissue (which is made up of liver cells). Diseases which primarily affect the liver cells (and not the pipes) are considered parenchymal.

Both my n my boyfriends liver enzymes are elevated. I have barretts disease and fatty liver disease Is it just coincidental both of ours are elevated or is something else going on with us?

Have

Have you both been tested for hepatitis? If not do so immediately. Also mononucleosis can cause elevated liver function tests (enzymes). Otherwise it could be coincidental, especially if you both have high triglycerides or fatty livers. It is difficult to say. Take care.

Fatty liver

My liver enzymes are elevated, but i tested negative for hepatitis, could I have liver disease or cancer?

Possibly, not likely

Hepatitis
Meds, supplements and alcohol can elevate your liver enzymes. Chronic hepatitis C is common, so make sure they tested for it. The first step is to make sure whatever you put in your mouth isn't hurting your liver, and follow your test results over time. About 9% of adults have abnormal LFTs. Obesity causing fatty liver is another common cause. I'm not sayin' you're fat, but had to mention it!
