Hi, Male in 30s - UK. Had a Liver function test (DRPB) & "Serum ALT Level" was high measuring 56 on a scale of 10-35. What are the concerns?

Can intense physical activity such as training for a triathlon cause an increase in both AST and ALT in liver function test?
ALT and AST:
Both these enzyme also might be released from muscle cell which might happen with heavy exertion.

Bottom line is ast, alt are not specific for liver. ...Read more

A recent liver function test puts SGPT/ALT at 33, Alkaline Phosphate at 142, Albumin at 3.1. Are they indication of any problem?
May be: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

Took 1 Arcoxia 90mg 3 days before liver function test. AST, ALT, etc all normal except GGT 124. Can Arcoxia 3 days before test be the cause?
Probably not!: While all drugs can be hepatotoxic, the insult t liver cells (hepatocytes) will elevate SGOT and SGPT, SGPT usually first. SGOT comes from muscle as well;. SGPT only liver. GGT comes from the biliary tree, gallbladder and connective tissue of the liver, frequently indicating gall bladder issues. I suppose it CAN happen, but this would be exceedingly rare. ...Read more

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 more

Liver function test results: GGT 90 U/l. All other indicators including Bilubrin, ALT, AST, Proteins etc are well in normal range Please advise on GGT?
GGT: The GGT level, when elevated with all of the rest of the liver tests being completely normal, is usually nonspecific and does not necessarily mean that liver disease is present. All I would do initially is repeat those tests in 2 to 3 months. If it is still elevated, you should consider seeing a gastroenterologist just to be sure that nothing is wrong. Good luck. ...Read more

Two enzymes: If they're high in the blood, they've often leaked from injured liver cells. They're not dangerous by themselves, but they mean the cause needs to be found.

Need sgpt to sgot ratios details in liver function test my sgot to sgpt ratio is 66/139 = 0.47 what does it mean?
It is not the ratio that is such an issue. Elevation liver enzymes indicated injury to liver cells. You enzyme levels are not too high and can be explained chronic panceatitis. If SGOT were higher than SGPT that would have indicated more serious damage. See this site for more info.
