My b12 levels are always 1200-1300 and my alanine levels are high. Does it neccesarily mean something is wrong with the liver?

My b12 levels are always 1200-1300 and my alanine levels are high. Does it neccesarily mean something is wrong with the liver?

Maybe: Elevated B12 means nothing. You're making more of the binder protein for some reason. Nobody measures alanine, but if your alanine amino transferase (ALT / SGPT) levels are up, you'll want to know why -- if it's not alcohol, you may have a medication allergy, a viral hepatitis, iron overload, Wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, or it may be your body's way of asking for more exercise. ...Read more

A common test would be for alanine aminotransferase, sometimes called a liver enzyme. "Slight" elevations are common during illnesses but should be rechecked. Another 'cause' for an elevation is the use of normal values for adults. ...Read more

What does it mean when you have high alkaline phosphatase levels, but low bilirubin, high aspartate transaminase?

See a hepatologist: In this setting, an elevated alkaline phosphatase (also known as alk phos), may be an indicator of bile duct obstruction, but can also be elevated in a number of other diseases, including immune injury to the bile ducts, such as primary sclerosing cholangitis or primary biliary cirrhosis. Alk phos can also be elevated in the presence of liver masses and infection. ...Read more
