Not necessarily: Liver function is mainly looked at through total protein, albumin, international normalized ratio levels, which are proteins that the liver produces to help other parts of the body-if they are consistently low then it can suggest liver dysfunction or under functioning. AST and ALT are markers also, but not as specific for liver dysfunction as the above mentioned. ...Read more
