Liver can recover: The liver can often recover from many insults and damage. If you have any form of hepatitis you will need to be treated by a liver specialist. If you just have a mild increase in liver enzymes then there are some things you can do to help your liver recover. Stop all alcohol and Tylenol. Eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of water. Good luck, take care and do not worry. ...Read more

What does it mean if your liver level is high?

What does it mean if your liver level is high?

Transaminitis?: Not sure what you mean by the "liver level" but but liver enzymes commonly measured in the blood are called transaminases 9eg. Ast, alt) and when they are elevated it suggests there is inflammation of the liver and this can be on the basis of many possible causes including alcohol, fatty chage, hepatitis (infectious, autoimmune, vascular) or drugs. Good luck! ...Read more

At-home liver test?: Why are you doing this? Screening your urine for bilirubin will pick up only conjugated hyperbilirubinemia that would be apparent from your eyes being a bit yellow in the sunlight. Screens for urobilinogen normally run +1; crooked "liver tests" encourage people to worry about this. If you feel well, and this isn't something recommended by your physician, stop troubling yourself with this. ...Read more

This is the range of values expected for healthy individuals. Unhealthy people can have normal values and vise versa. Best to consult with the physicial who ordered the test to answer your question. ...Read more
