Hemolysis: Very strenuous exercise that involves pavement-pounding can destroy enough red blood cells that the bilirubin and reticulocyte counts go up. As a pathologist, i'm always reminding folks to look at the person, not the numbers. If your bilirubin's up and it's not jogger's hemolysis or gilbert's, try to find the cause with your physician's help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes indeed: It's got to be strenuous enough to kill off some liver cells by diverting blood to the muscles long enough to have liver cells in the lobule centers get sick from lack of oxygen. They'll heal up fine; all marathon runners do this. Or unconditioned muscle exercised heavily may leak SGOT and sgpt. It's worth ruling out by history before embarking on a costly workup of elevated transaminases. ...Read more

All good: 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.

Not liver chemistry: Technically, after a very strenuous workout, your muscle enzymes may be elevated and these include the "liver" enzymes ALT and AST, which are also found in muscle tissue; one way to check if this is a muscle issue is to also do CPK enzyme; however, assuming you have not totally trashed yourself, your enzymes should normalize within a week or so; ...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

Explanations for elevated bilirubin ? (indirect high, direct normal)...also normal hemoglobin, low platelets, other liver function tests normal

Sir which high enzyme levels indicate significant liver damage due to alcohol? GGT levels or SGPT or SGOT levels..
SGOT / SGPT: These are better markers for damage. SGPT 38, SGOT 28 are not concerning though they're higher than most young men's. Some men run a high GGT even if they don't drink and this shouldn't be taken as proving anything. If you're drinking daily, this might be a good time to cut way back -- who really needs to be doing this? ...Read more
AST elevated (65), ALT elevated (50) and total bilirubin elevated (3.0). All other enzymes are normal. Is this significant??
Any symptoms?: Why were these tests done? 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. Having said that, it does not seem to be a serious issue, however the elevated AST may be due to alcohol, medications you may taking or if you are overweight. Discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more
Can exercise cause slight increase ALT and AST but still normal range with normal ggt, alk phos and bilirubin?

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Cortisol levels: Cortisol varies throughout the day. It is generally higher in the am vs the pm, but it is spiking up and down all day. Normal walking would not particularly elevate it, but it goes up/down all the time anyway. The more important question is why is cortisol being measured? Perhaps check with an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Big picture: Some people have a gene that causes elevated GGT in folks who are otherwise healthy. Occasionally I have to reassure employers that these people aren't secretly abusing alcohol, since GGT rises in drinkers before other enzymes do. If you drink some, your physician may want to repeat this after two weeks off all booze, and decide then whether to pursue a lone abnormal lab. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you give me suggestions on i had bloodwork performed at work and everything came back desirable except my GGT level. It was 181.?
GGT: This is markedly elevated GGT (reference values: 7-51 IU/L). Clinically, elevated GGT levels correlate well with alcohol abuse and alcoholic liver disease. Of course alcohol intake is not the only cause of elevated GGT: certain medications and other liver diseases can show GGT increase. Please,see your doctor and limit alcohol intake. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not voluntary: You can't just lower your liver enzymes by wishing. The cause has to be known and the offending factor removed. Hepatitis can do it, alcohol but so can statins (cholesterol medicines) . Talk to your doctor and find out what can be done about it and things you should avoid to exacerbate it, and alcohol is definitely one of them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lifestyle: I trust that hepatitis C, Wilson's and the other causes of elevated transaminses with fatty liver have been ruled out. I trust you don't drink alcohol. Find some form of strenuous aerobic exercise that you enjoy, and get back into it wholeheartedly and with the same passion that gave you so much enjoyment as a teenaged male. Helath doesn't come from a pill or supplement bottle. ...Read more
I am 22y/o and I recently checked mg blood, it came out I have 255 GGT levels which is elevated, so I am getting scared. The rest are normal. I have 6?
Liver enzymes: Sometimes this can be due to gallbladder problems/stones. It is common in women 20s-40s, especially if they are overweight. There is also fatty liver disease where your liver fails to process the dietary fats efficiently, common with obesity. Medication can be a cause, especially those metabolized by the liver. Infection and other inflammatory causes are possible. Your doctor can tell you more. ...Read more
Thanks dr mahnensmith for fast response did not mention that i starter on klonopin (clonazepam) .5 daily read that medication also can rise GGT levels is this true?
Klonopin (clonazepam) & liver: Klonopin (clonazepam) can elevate liver enzymes. The incidence is low. It is more likely to elevate ALT and AST than GGT but it can elevate GGT alone. So, the presence of klonopin (clonazepam) is a second variable to consider. If you can, and with discussion with your doc, try to wean slowly to off and then see if GGT comes down. Wean is important if you decide to try. ...Read more

Sir increased GGT level 90 u/l,does it mean any liver damage which has already happend,with SGPT 38 and SGOT 28u/l.
Determine cause: Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) is a test used to help determined type of liver disease and bile duct obstructions.

They may also be caused by alcohol abuse or use of drugs that are toxic to the liver ...Read more
