Function Varies: Difficult to say. Elevation in liver function would need to be assessed with other factors. These would include social behavior (alcohol for example), travel history, medication / herbal, weight, family history. Additionally, comparison to prior labs would be of benefit. I encourage you to speak with your provider to discuss. Best in health.
