Unlikely: Liver disorders would prolong the clotting parameters, not shorten these. In fact the shorter times than normal are questionable. It would be appropriate to discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the tests. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
