Leukocytes are double what they should be in urine.

I have felt unwell for 7 months and I was misdiagnosed with menieres due to general malaise, bout of dizziness and severe episodes on mental confusion.

Recently I had these tests done which from what I read could indicate several causes ie cirrhosis, liver or pancreatic cancer, hepatitis (although i was neg for this 2 yrs ago)

I don't drink alcohol. I partake in moderate exercise, I eat extremely healthy making sure I get all the right nutrients as much as possible. I did used to abuse narcotics such as cocaine, mdma all those days are long in my past.

I am currently living in Spain, away from my homeland in the UK. I realise these blood tests along with my symptoms are not good and I'm not sure whether I should return to the UK to speak to english doctors where I can better describe my symptoms or stick it out in Spain where I have been misdiagnosed up to this point.

My GP has booked me in for an urgent consultation with a specialist in 2 weeks. I am thinking of going back to the UK in the meantime and try to double up on advice.

I'm terrified of it being liver or pancreatic cancer as I am aware of the terrible survival rates

Your condition with minimal elevated liver enzymes is indicative of early stages of liver inflammation (Hepatitis). The cause can be obesity, inflammation, viral or other causes which needs to be determined with further investigations and physical examination.

Consult your doctor or a hepatologist who can provide specific opinion and advice.
