Can Alt Ast Levels Be Elevated If Drinking Night Before Test
Can pregnancy alone cause elevated liver enzyme levels? Alt level was 54. Is this considered high?
What are normal ALT liver enzyme levels? Is ALT 54 high? Elevated levels due to pregnancy or having a cold maybe? (no drugs were taken for cold).
40 IU or less: We'd rather see them below 40, and most folks run 1-20. A few beers will kick them upwards; running a marathon is likely to put you into "danger zone" -- a lab value means nothing except in context. Let's repeat that alt in a few weeks off alcohol & meds -- or whatever your physician thinks best. ...Read more
What would cause liver enzymes to be elevated briefly? ALT 107, AST 72, and then returned to normal on 6 week lab recheck- ALT 31, AST 15
Liver inflammation: The most common cause would be viral hepatitis but can be seen with infectious mononucleosis, other viral infections,certain medications, or transient congestion in the biliary tracts from stones. Your physician or a gastroenterologist can order the appropriate tests to try to pinpoint the cause although the problem appears to have cleared fortunately. ...Read more
Can pregnancy or having a cold/flu elevate your liver enzyme levels? Alt level is 54. Is this considered high?
Some perhaps: Depends on the virus...And on the medicines you are taking, either regularly or for the cold/flu symptoms. Alt=54 is not very high--i would not worry about it. Could ask your dr to recheck it in about 2 weeks (when over cold, etc.) to allay fears, but not essential if no right upper abdominal pain / nausea / stool color changes / yellowing of skin. ...Read more
Will Valium and alcohol affect your alk phos, AST and ALT levels when a liver function test is performed. Alkphos29, alt110, ast38 bilirubin dir 0.4?
Liver function tests: Although valium is metabolized by the liver, it does not increase or decrease liver enzyme activity. Alcohol, on the other hand, depending on the amount consumed & frequency of consumption, can significantly elevate liver enzyme levels to a lesser or greater degree. Your alt is about 4 x normal; ast & direct bilirubin r minimally elevated; alk phos is ok. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can also affect liver enzymes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could drinking the day of a blood test cause slightly elevated lipase levels? Do not drink heavily and never had acute pancreatitis.
I think so: I think that if you've never had this problem before, and you had been drinking that same day before the test, then it's certainly possible the alcohol caused an acutely elevated lipase level. If you drink on a daily basis, though, it's also possible that irbid always a little elevated. Maybe repeat the lipase lab when not drinking to check, ok? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My boyfriend has an elevated liver enzyme count related to alcohol. His levels were at about 120 for both. What level does cirrhosis occur.
Forgive me : Ket me be frank. Your boyfriend is drinking heavily enough to put his health at grave danger. His liver may or may not go bad and it takes a long time. But other aspects of his life will go bad from alcohol. I guarantee it. If he cares about you, he will stop now. If he continues, recognize he is not the right guy for you. Be brave and best wishes. ...Read more
Elevated liver enzyme level ALT 54:is this that high to be concerned?What are normal levels? Can this be caused if u have a cold or are pregnant?
Yes: The cause may be something as simple as being a bit allergic to your cold medicine. Your physician's next step is for you to repeat the level off alcohol and meds. If it's still up, a search for one of the dangerous-but-treatable causes (wilson's, hepatitis, iron-overload, a few others) may begin. ...Read more

Hi.My ALT is 90 and AST is 100.Hepatitis test negative.What should I do to reduce the ALT and AST levels.?What food I use and avoid eating?
Talk to your doctor.: Elevated transaminases (ast, alt) suggest liver injury. A negative hepatitis panel only excludes (most) viral infections that could injure the liver. Other causes of liver injury need to be investigated. Your doctor may ask you to see a gastroenterologist or hepatologist for further work up. In the meantime, i would avoid Acetaminophen (tylenol), herbal supplements, and alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would cause only ALT and AST to rise but normal bilirubin, albumin, GGT, LDH etc.... ALL other enzymes are normal. Started 1 month ago. ?
Suspect hepatitis: Liver injury(Hapatitis) of any cause(infections or chemical damage) will often affect the ALT and AST first and not have effects on Bilirubin if the damage is mild to moderate. Excessive Alcohol use is a common cause, so is Hepatitis A, Hepatitis-B and Hapatitis-C. You should go see your doctor who can do the appropriate tests to make the proper diagnosis and advice further treatment for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

Infection and other inflammatory causes are possible. Your doctor can tell you more. ...Read more

Liver area pain, 2 yrs - blood tests normal (elvated ast/alt), ultrasound results normal.Pain when working out, after drinking, or hookah tobacco.Why?!
Other possibilities: Because your pain is in the area of the liver, it still may have another source. The right kidney is behind, the large intestine is in front. The pancreas and duodenum/stomach are under and next to. You have ribs above and around, and muscles on all sides. With the normal liver tests, you should work with your doctor to find the source - don't forget the ribs and muscles (working out pain?). ...Read more
Liver enzymes were normal in early April – AST was 32, ALT was 28, at that time I was drinking maybe 4 or 5 pints of beer on weekends (no alcohol during week). Since then, I have had 5-8 pints per wknd...blood test in a week ..will liver levels rise?
May be: May be is not much of an answer and you may already know the results of your tests. However, I would like to stress that alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good ever. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

If my AST level is 52 and ALT level is 67, should I still drink alcohol? I don't drink that often maybe once to three times a month.
Might confuse workup: Probably best not to, until it is known why the liver enzymes are elevated. Acetaminophen, alcohol, and NSAIDS like ibuprofen are common reasons for liver tests to be elevated. If the liver is injured, these three are best avoided. Mild NSAID related liver enzyme elevations often are not accompanied by significant liver injury, but they can interfere with workup and confuse the issue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am 21 years old and recently had some blood work done my AST was 36 and ALT 58. Both slightly elevated. I don't drink a lot does this raise concern?
Evaluate: Hi. That liver is a nice thing to have around and in good working order. Elevated ALT and AST (i.e., biochemical hepatitis) should be evaluated. Causes (besides drinking too much) include viral, autoimmune, metabolic (fatty liver), iron overload, copper overload, etc. It may be something better off treated than left alone. Good luck! ...Read more
Alkaline Phosphatase elevated - 128 (ref range 30-115). ALT 16, AST 18, all other labs normal. I don’t drink, smoke or healthy. Should I be concerned?
Alk phos: Some young healthy people have a slightly elevated alk phos. Bone disorders as well as liver disease can elevate that enzyme. Fatty liver or alcohol ingestion may be factors. Since your level is only mildly elevated, and if you're healthy and because other liver enzymes are normal, repeat the test in a few weeks. A hepatologist can advise you best if the level remains elevated. ...Read more

Liver enzyme levels: These levels are close enough to normal for some labs that the reference ranges are needed to properly interpret them. They may be mildly elevated which could be due to a host of possible causes, or could be due to "normal" variation. If they are persistently elevated then further study to look for causes, such as viruses, and a more thorough history should be considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
