Supplements toxic to the liver?
I've had a couple of blood tests with mildly elevated ALT, one of the liver enzymes. Finally got in to see a gastroenterologist today and I have to get more blood tests and a liver ultrasound to start ruling things out. Thankfully he had no issue with my low carb WOE. But he suggested that I stop taking most of my supplements, including biotin, alpha lipoic acid, chromium picolinate, Jarro-Zymes (pancreatic enzymes) and turmeric curcumin (natural antiinflammatory). He had no issue with my fish oil, CoQ10, B-100, D-3 and multivitamin. Anyone else have experience with these supplements or know whether they can cause liver inflammation?
