Liver damage: Thees are markers of liver damage, but don't tell the full story. You need to provide a full history of your risks (alcohol, toxins, metabolic state, exposures, etc.) and go from there to discover the likely cause of the damage so you can remove or treat it. In the interim, avoid things known to cause liver damage, like alcohol.
