Comment from: De nis, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: April 22

My liver blood test results are ALT 140 and AST 62. I run 5 miles a day and juice every morning 32 oz carrot juice. I drink average 30 bottles of Powerade per week. The doctor doesn't seem concerned, wonder if I should be.

Comment from: Ruminator, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: March 16

The liver blood test results from my first blood draw on 2/5 were ALT 117 and AST 81. The doctor had me retest due to elevated readings and concern over potential liver issues. Retest was on 3/4; ALT 22 and AST 18. Not a drinker. No changes in medications at all or any other changes in diet, exercise, etc. Should be relieved but can't until I know why the numbers changed dramatically for no known reason.

Comment from: Maggot, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 10

I am a nondrinker, with past history of auto immune hepatitis. Recent liver blood tests show AST 36 and ALT 56. Wonder if I should be concerned.

Comment from: Rosita P, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: March 05

Six weeks ago the results of my liver blood test was at 70. Current result shows 170, and I am very puzzled. All other readings like cholesterol showed that it was back to normal. Sugar level dropped from 7 to 6. But the Iiver test reading went up more than double!

Comment from: Gene, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: March 03

My ALT level is 4 in my liver blood test. I had my gallbladder removed 4 years ago. Now I'm having stomach issues with hurting on the right side and belching, and can only eat bland food. Wondering if this is my liver or gastritis.

Comment from: Renee, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 30

My liver blood test showed my ALT was 37.

Comment from: Theress, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 18

The result of my liver blood test shows AST is 66 and ALT is 193. Wonder if these are high.

Comment from: Dan from Maine, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: February 11

My ALT has been around 48 to 60 off and on now on yearly checkup my ALT in the liver blood test is 100 and my AST is 56. Waiting for results from ultra sound imaging. The person that did the image had no reaction but didn't want to talk. I didn't push, maybe not her job to discuss. My cholesterol has always been high, especially my triglycerides, in the 480 range. Nonalcoholic fatty liver may be catching up to me. It is so hard to eat low carb, low fat, and low sugar. All I can do is hope for the best; still waiting.

Comment from: title girl, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: January 06

My ALT is 108 in my liver blood test. I am trying to change my eating habits and then I'll give it about a month and check again. I am sure I'll be fine, everyone appears to be different.

Comment from: Komol, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: November 19

I am a 46 years old man. Doctor diagnosed me with a fatty lever grade 2. I did blood test. My ALT is 58, HDL cholesterol is 36, LDL is 130, and serum creatinine is 1. Other tests are ok, within range. I have no hypertension or diabetes.

Comment from: Angelia, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: October 31

I am 53 years old, never smoked, no drugs, very rarely drink alcohol. Slightly overweight but very active. I take blood pressure medicines and potassium supplement, along with vitamins, vinegar and turmeric capsules. My liver enzymes are elevated to AST 90, and ALT 123. No idea what could cause this.

Comment from: Nick, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: October 08

The results of my liver blood test are SGOT 47.8, SGPT 85.3, GGT 147.8 and globulin 2.45. I am really scared.

Comment from: Marsha, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: September 20

The results of my liver blood test are AST 53 and ALT 87. I had coffee with just a tiny bit of cream but otherwise fasting. I was recommended I see my primary care physician. Just wondering if that is high enough to need to worry.

Comment from: Indrawati S, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: July 10

Comment from: Kisha, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: June 27

I'm a 46 year old woman who drinks a bottle of wine every day. I had blood work done and my liver results were good. They like the result to be 35 or below, and mine was 24! I have to say I was a little surprised.

Comment from: DebbieH, 7-12 Male (Caregiver) Published: June 27

My 10 year old son has elevated liver enzymes and is seeing a pediatric liver specialist. He has had an ultrasound and an MRI, both of which show everything is normal. His most recent ALT levels are 399, steadily climbing since April - 165, 207 and now 399. AST is 306, climbing since April - 102, 149 and now 306. He feels fine. He has no symptoms and doctor is perplexed. I'm worried, naturally.

Comment from: Kerry, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: May 08

I had a complete blood count done for routine physical recently. I am a healthy 49 year old woman and I do not drink. I recently had a urinary tract infection and had just completed a course of the antibiotic Macrobid one week before my bloodwork. My AST was 175 and ALT 95. I am waiting another two weeks to redo my liver blood test. Now I am really nervous. I have no other symptoms, well, other than anxiety now.

Comment from: Glenda, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: October 09

I'm 56, female, moderate drinker, and nonsmoker. Routine blood work shows slightly elevated liver enzymes. The doctor did ultrasound of my organs, and I am now waiting for results! I have been pretty healthy, I am overweight, but not huge. I had gallbladder out in 1996. I am on medicines for thyroid and high blood pressure. I am scared it could be cancer, but no family history of that.

Comment from: Michellekh, 25-34 Male (Caregiver) Published: July 03

My 30 Year old healthy active fit son just had liver function test run as part of a complete physical. His AST was 208 while norm is 40 and his ALT 458 and norm is 80. I'm kind of stressed over this. I wonder what could be causing this.

Comment from: ramsey, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: May 25

The results of my liver blood test came back with AST 4800 due to my alcoholism and cirrhosis. The liver is a fantastic bit of kit, take care of it. I haven't drunk since those results and my reading is now 375, all other results are raised and will never be normal, but as long as I don't drink again I can lead a full life.

Comment from: Isabella Zen, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: May 24

Last week the emergency department liver blood tests and CT scan results revealed an enlarged liver at 18 cm, and a small umbilical hernia. I am a 58 year old female, 104 lb., 5 ft. 3 in. I have a long history of codeine/acetaminophen due to chronic spine pain. I am awaiting appointment with the specialist. Perhaps early liver problems.

Comment from: Notheppy, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: May 08

During my hospital stay so far, from night 1 up to night 3, liver blood test results are ALT: 641 – 787 – 784, AST: 399 – 562 – 586, alkaline phosphate: 155 – 191 – 170, and bilirubin: 1.7 – 2 - 0.08. I am diagnosed with acute hepatitis C: 4,599,677, genotype 3. I can't stop itching and my numbers are too high and symptoms too complicated!

Comment from: Loz, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: May 07

Since 2012 my liver blood test results have been abnormal; my ALT is 123. The doctor doesn't seem to know what is causing this as my liver screening test came back negative with no abnormality. I have been stabbed that many times for blood and had scans but nothing untoward but I am worrying myself sick that something is wrong and doctors have missed it.

Comment from: SparkyDMFD, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: August 22

My liver function tests are absurd and I'm now questioning my doctors. I know why. I began taking medicines for latent tuberculosis on June 1st. My liver enzymes before I started were ALT 38 and AST 42. On July 11th they jumped to ALT 431 and AST 323. On Aug 10th they jumped again to ALT 655 and AST 499. My doctor now wants me to continue on and test again on Sept 13. I am miserable. Sick all the time. When I eat, I get sick. I was a healthy person until I started this treatment. Beginning to question if my doctors are looking out for my best interest.

Comment from: Kb, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: July 18

The result of my liver blood test is ALT 89, and I am scheduled for an ultrasound. I don't have a clue what causes this elevation from the standard range of 54. I am not a drinker nor taking any Tylenol. But I do like my green tea.

Comment from: Doug, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: February 12

My liver enzymes have been reported as high on 3 different events over the last 3 months. I started having massive violent seizures June 2015. I have had over 8 of them so they ran tests. My doctor said many times it points to cancer in the body somewhere so they ran a battery of tests. It was found I had a malignant brain tumor. I guess now I wish I didn't know.

Comment from: Ski, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: January 12
