My blood test results show that in the year since I went Paleo
Blood tests September 2010, February 2011 and September 2011:
Triglicerides 198 81 78 LDL 183 172 155 HDL 37 49 57
However on the liver front:
Bilirubin 0.59 1.26 1.41 GOT 23 33 34 GPT 26 45 46
From September of 2010, after being diagnosed as Type II diabetic my diet changed completely.
I am wondering if someone can ask me the right question in order to ascertain what is happening with my liver.
No alcohol to speak of. I have almost totally cut out fruit. I do include cheese and some nuts. Take various herbs including Milk Thistle. Only grass fed animals for meat. Only organic vegetables. Vitamin E and D supplements. Cod liver oil. Lots of virgin coconut oil. Various other tweaks.

The above are my scores from 3 tests as I mentioned in the original post.
Just went for my latest results:
GOT = 21 GPT = 22 and bilirubin back down to 0,77 right back to where they used to be originally which seems to lend credence to the fact that my liver was kind of de-toxing for a period of time.

My billirubin is at your level, too, but I have Gilbert's. Yours went up from normal to 1.4. Draw attention to that and ask your doc to to measure it "direct." Check your prior #s and see if it was around 0.6 or 1.4. High billirubin could be due to many things, everything from gallstones. Your liv enzyme going up is probably due to liver detox and they should come down soon, although most peple have their liver #s come down a lot sooner. Plus you weren't really overweight.
