what can cause enzyme levels to be off

1 doctor answer
Dr. Lisa Rankin
24 years experience ADHD and Autism
Need more info: There are many different enzymes so not able to answer definitively. Two of the most common to be told are high would be liver or cardiac. Since cardiac are usually tested as inpatient you may mean liver. The most common reason would be fatty liver which can be from obesity, elevated lipids or sugars, alcohol or genetics. Hepatitis, infectious and autoimmune, and cancer can also be the cause.
