Question on Eggs

  1. Exclamation Question on Eggs


    I had blood work done about a two months ago and i came up with slightly elevated liver enzymes (not sure of numbers, parents have the blood work). I'm currently cutting and my breakfast is 6 eggs, 4 yolks and 2 pieces of wheat toast with natty pb. My doctor told me that anything more than 2 eggs a week because of fat and cholesterol content. According to him that's 40 more eggs than i'm supposed to eat. Am i missing something?


  2. *more than 2 eggs a week is too much, sorry for the typo.

  3. Doctor is a tard. That school of thought has been debunked many times in recent years. Heavy fat consumption can elevate liver enzymes, but it is usually from bad fats (e.g. trans, excess sat).

    darnit, rodja beat me to it.

    if your cholesterol + triglycerides were fine, then ignore it. There are so many things that can cause elevated liver #s that its hard to believe. if you worked out within the last 12 hours prior to the blood test, that could have caused it as well

    There is also the ever popular false-positive. I remember my ex getting her bloodwork done and her numbers cam back somewhere around 600. She got retested a week later and they were around 55.

    whew, that would be some crapping pants time in between there Plus too it is relelvant whether its AST ALT or billirubin. AST or ALT being high alone but bilirubin being normal isn't such a big deal if I remember right. if all 3 are elevated, thats a different story tho

    my AST was above the normal range, my ALT was probably around 70.

    there is a huge thread on MD where people that work out have elevated liver enzymes. In fact, some study came out that showed that those same liver enzymes that you have elevated, especially ALT, are higher in healthy people that have worked out recently...

    My doctor told me to stop working out for a week before re-test. No way I'm going to do that. i won't take more than 2 days off in a row.

    if you are really concerned you can ask the doctor for a different liver test that doesn't involve the blood. I think they can do some kind of biopsy, which is what they'd do anyway, if they repeatedly found your liver enzymes high. i think that biopsy is painful tho!

    Eggs contain cholesterol and high cholesterol levels in our blood increases our risk of heart disease.

    However, the cholesterol we get from our food - and this includes eggs - has less effect on the amount of cholesterol in our blood than the amount of saturated fat we eat. If your GP has told you to watch your cholesterol levels, your priority should be cutting down on saturated fats.

    "Doctor is a tard. That school of thought has been debunked many times in recent years. Heavy fat consumption can elevate liver enzymes, but it is usually from bad fats (e.g. trans, excess sat)."

    And what he said.

  18. How soon was it that you ate before this test?

    ANYTHING you eat increases liver enzymes for a time.

    Taking an Aspirin increases them too. I'd say you're ok unless it stays at that level for a long while.

  19. alright now i have a question related is eating between 6-8 eggs a day bad? like side effects cuz my doc told me i eat way too many eggs but i now only get to eat like 2-3 eggs a day compared to my normal 6-8 eggs a day

    This is what I've learned as

  21. Heavy weight training can also cause increased liver enymes.

    I personally eat 6-8 whole eggs a day, I have regular blood work and it is always within normal parameters. Having said that though, you can always test before/after diets (egg/no egg)with blood work yourself to see how your body reacts. You can also switch to just egg whites if it makes you feel more comfortable.
