Not a thyroid cause: If the thyroid is fine, then it's not causing your symptoms.There are other causes for hot flash and elevated liver enzymes beside thyroid. Are you perimenopausal? Do you have a viral or other form of infections? Are you on medications that can cause this? It's hard to say without an examination & asking more questions. Pls see your doctor for an evaluation, esp if you have elevated liver enzymes.

Check other organs: Hot flashes and elevated liver enzymes can sometimes happen with autoimmune thyroiditis but this will be a sort of an atypical finding. Best if you talk with your pcp regarding possible need for referral to a rheumatologist, if he or she suspect an underlying rheumatological disease such as lupus or other type of connective tissue disease. Excess weight (if present) can cause high liver enzymes.
