Elevated Alt And Ast With Hypothyroidism
AST elevated (65), ALT elevated (50) and total bilirubin elevated (3.0). All other enzymes are normal. Is this significant??
Yes: Ast and alt are measures of liver enzymes and often are elevated in the setting of hepatitis or other causes of injury to liver cells. However sometimes one or the other will be much more elevated. Sometimes fatty liver due to alcohol or some drugs/toxins can affect one enzyme more than the other. ...Read more

Usually not: The gall stone when present in the gall bladder does not affect the liver enzymes. Only if it is obstructing the common bile duct, it can cause abnormal liver function but the patient is very sick in that condition.

No: But all are markers for the metabolic syndrome. I trust that alcohol, medications, hepatitis b and c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, and autoimmune hepatitis have been ruled out, or will be ruled out, as causing your elevated liver enzymes. The trick to managing metabolic syndrome is what you'd probably like doing anyway -- a fitness lifestyle, low carbs, getting lean muscle. Bump up fitness now? ...Read more
High ALT...: Elevated alt can be caused by hundreds of conditions. Acute HIV infection is one of them. Other viruses, medications, inflammation, and alcohol are much more common causes. If you are concerned about hiv, very good testing is available. In fact, you can now test yourself for HIV at home using a kit obtained from drug stores without a prescription. ...Read more
Can gilbert's also present with mildly elevated direct bilirubin (0.4-0.7)..with elevated total (1.4-2.2) Mostly indirect still some direct elevation?
Not from Gilbert's: Gilbert's syndrome causes a deficiency in the enzyme that converts indirect bilirubin to direct bilirubin. In other words, the only issue is that indirect bilirubin is converted to direct bilirubin more slowly. People with Gilbert's are not unhealthy from it and are not considered to have a "disease." If direct bilirubin is elevated, something else is going on. ...Read more
Liver function tests: Alt and ast, prior noted as SGOT and sgpt, are part of a group of enzyme known as transaminases. They rise if something is inflaming the liver, such as a viral illness, mononucleosis, alcohol toxic effects, obesity or diabetes causing fatty infiltration in liver, adverse drug effects from a variety of medications... ...Read more
Can hepatitis b surface ab-ls test with value of 0.2 explain elevated ALT (sgpt) level? Normal fe panel. Possible reasons and advice?
Depends on the cause: Sgot and SGPT are liver enzymes. Lowering them depends on the cause of the elevation. Some medications can cause the elevation and stopping the medications will result in normalizing them. Alcohol, gallstones, infections (mono, hepatitis), and other liver toxins can also cause elevated liver enzymes. ...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
