Hi there. I have been on Tamoxifen 9 months now. My liver enzymes have elevated slightly and we will re look at them in a months time. I am trying to lose weight. Have been very successful doing an intermittent fasting regime before cancer. But nervous to try now .... Not too sure if it will impact on the liver. Any ideas?

You might find this interesting; intermittent fasting seems to have a beneficial effect on our liver function overall. I know you didn't mention fatty liver disease, but so many health benefits of intermittent fasting are being discovered, I thought I'd share.
