Elevated LFT's: If you continued your fast food diet but expected milk thistle to correct the effects on your liver, you now have evidence that this didn't work. There could also be problems with the preparation you used, as some have been associated with elevations in alt. http://tinyurl.com/krz5efy drinking alcohol heavily or large quantities of liver-affecting medications like tylenol (acetaminophen) could cause this too.
