My blood test results: total bilirubin: 1.41 h ast: 40 h alt: 100 h total alk phosphatase: 43 l serum total protein: 7.1 e.R. Said hepatitis?
Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more

Had a blood test one year ago. The AST = 31 and ALT = 25. New test results - AST = 26 and ALT = 12. Ratio is now higher than 2. Any cause for concern?

Blood test lipid results showed 2 things flagged as abnormal. AST 64 and ALT 98. What does this mean?
Elevated liver test:
These tests are above normal, but not more than twice the "upper limit of normal", and so would be considered a mild degree of elevation.
Numerous conditions can cause this; it depends on why your physician ordered the test. Can be from medications, or from a temporary or chronic illness.
Would check with your ordering physician. If was thought temporary, could repeat them after several weeks. ...Read more
He drinks 150 odd units on average a week, went for a blood test and the results bil 28, alp 45, ast 27, alt 37, alb 48, ggt 92, 74. All ok?

ALT blood test result is 81, the AST 39. I'm not a drinker, but am 50 pounds overweight with most of it in the belly. Is NAFLD probably the reason?
Exclude other causes:
I assume you are well. There are many causes of impaired liver function I note you are a nondrinker so that removes a common cause. Fifty pounds overweight, possible NAFLD. Do you have diabetes?
Are you taking medicines?
Have you had Hepatitis B and C excluded?
Hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder found in people of Northern European origin and Wilson's disease is rare cause.
Get tested. ...Read more

My friend's blood test came back with ALT at 283 and AST at 123. With enzymes so high, what could it mean?
Get worked up: His physician will probably repeat these with him off alcohol and all meds after two weeks. If they're normal, that's his warning. If not, a workup for hepatitis b, hepatitis c, autoimmune hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's and antitrypsin deficiency as appropriate. If none is found, he may perhaps have recommended an even more fitness-focused lifestyle. Best to you both. ...Read more
Hi I have just had a blood test done and high levels of AST and ALT. What does this mean? What should I do?
It depends..: It depends on exactly how high they are and what your doctor felt on examination of your liver (did he/she feel it was enlarged/painful?).

I recently went to a dermatologist due to itching, I had a blood test and my AST came back "high" at 41 and my ALT "high" at 56. What could this be?
Follow it up: These are borderline-high liver enzymes. It may be nothing more serious than your being sensitive to Ibuprofen or another medicine you took, only you know if you drink a lot, and we need to rule out metabolic syndrome, a chronic hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's, and a couple of others. ...Read more
General blood test reveals AST 85/alt 83. Moderated drinker 1-2 glasses of wine daily. No symptoms.

If these are not the cause, you are likely to be screened for the metabolic syndrome and/or urged to resume a fitness-focused lifestyle. Best wishes. ...Read more
281 cholesterol, 201 TG, 61 ALT, 32 AST 179000 PLATELET, , 14.5 HGB THIS is my blood test, I am 48 years old man?
Cholesterol too high: Start with normal: HgB (hemoglobin) & platelets fine--no anemia, blood clotting cells normal. ALT (liver function test) a little high: other liver test (AST) normal.

I have hepatitis C and I noticed on my last blood test my ALT was 80 but AST was 41 anything to worry about dr said no?
Need more info...: Factors such as additional testing for HCV viral load, other causes of elevated ALT, liver imaging and nature of the high ALT (rate of increase/ stability of the lab value) and clinical context are important to know. Though an elevated ALT can suggest HCV infection, it is difficult for any doc - other than the doc you saw, to know the significance of the elevated ALT at this point. ...Read more
When should I have a blood test again my test was last friday liver enzymes were high first one was 95? It was AST 95 ALT 72 am I ok?
Recently got my blood test report. 1. Ast (sgot)-65 (range:10-40 u/l) 2. Alt (sgpt)-71 (range:09-46 u/l) 3. Cholesterol-hdl (37) & ldl/hdl ratio>3.03 (avg. Risk 2.29-4.90) what could these be indicating?
Lab data: You have some form of hepatitis (irritation of liver cells) but the cause of this is unclear. Your lipid profile is incomplete but what you provided seems of no major concern. None of this is of substantial value without placing it into a clinical context and the only person who can do that is the doctor who ordered the testing. ...Read more
