Not necessarily: These are liver function tests. When they are high, it means there is some degree of liver damage.

Even though cancer can cause increased liver tests, other more common causes as listed above should be considered first. ...Read more

Liver Cancer patient SGPT (ALT)=84 U/L, SGOT (AST)=121 U/L, BILIRUBIN=10.91 with no bile duct obstrcton in Ultra Sound. Does this mean liver is failing?
Can't tell w/ these.: The bilirubin level is high (whether direct or indirect bilirubin) & this can lead to jaundice. However, the TREND is more important than 1 lab value - without knowing your history & past lab results better, it is hard to determine. Also, liver "function" is also measured by cholesterol, complement, & coagulation tests (INR, PTT). Even with these blood tests, sometimes a biopsy is needed. TTYD. GL ...Read more

My nine yr old has elevated levels of ESR, AST & ALT also anemic she has hashimoto syndrome she complains of intermittent pain on her left side?
Needs investigation: I thought Hashimoto's disease involves the thyroid. It would not have anything to do with the elevated AST and ALT. These enzymes suggest some kind of liver involvement. An elevated ESR may mean that there is some inflammatory process going on in the body, but the intermittent pain on the left side does not fit with any of the above. Bottom line, your child's doctor will have to check him/her out ...Read more

Find cause: I'm not concerned about the vitamin d. Many people your age have high alk phos without any real problem.
