I am treated as POS for years and i am 42 years old. I am taking ortho-tri-cyclen-lo for 5 months. I was told that i have fatty liver and now the blood result shows too much enzymes.
Please excuse my stupidity, but I have no idea what POS is, and I was an ICU RN for years.
The simple answer to your question is... all drugs are at least partially metabolized in your liver. Some drugs are excreted via your liver, bowels or kidneys. Also, 42 years old is a little late to be taking BCP's, if you are using them for that purpose. Surely you are starting menopause or at least your FSH and LH levels should not be those of a 20 year old.
What other, if any meds are you taking. Anything is possible in regards to your liver function. Why do you have fatty liver disease? Did your doc say? I think I would be asking lots of questions and hopefully you can get them answered.
Somehow I think there is more involved than BCP's.
Good luck and God bless. Please write me back and let me know what's going on with you. I will answer as many questions as I can... and if I don't know the answer, I know where to find it.
