Who ordered them?: Why did she have the tests done? Did your doctor order them? Need more information...Hepatitis is one reason to have elevated liver function tests so a hepatitis panel might be helpful. Mononucleosis and CMV (cytomegalovirus) can also cause liver enzyme elevation so those might be helpful too. Then there are more esoteric tests that a specialist might want to order. Discuss with your physician 1st.
