Liver blood values got 50 u/l-gpt 84 u/l-ggt 118 u/l , big problem?  Had much alcohol past 2 weeks, stopped 2 days before test

I'm happy for you: Congratulations on recognizing the problem. Your physician will probably ask to have these repeated in two weeks off alcohol. They will probably be normal. You have dodged a bullet. Your life will be far better without alcohol, and my hope is that the new friendships and activities that you find will be as richly rewarding as others who have had the same experience. ...Read more

 how long does acute alcohol hepatitis last? I had liver discomfort wen I quit drinkin.Bloods taken 2weeks after I quit. Normal. How likely I had it?

Complex, no reliable: simple answer. Hepatitis is a catch-all term meaning liver inflammation. Alcohol, viral infections & fat storage from high carb intake are all drivers, yet most damage missed until severe enough, long enough. If very healthy, liver can regenerate from as much as 90% loss within 3-4 months, yet many variables. On lab, look for albumen high normal (e.g.) >4.5 mg/dL, bilirubin low & 3 enzymes low. ...Read more

If I take a liver enzyme blood test, will it detect alcohol I drank?

If I take a liver enzyme blood test, will it detect alcohol I drank?

No: If you want to know the level of alcohol , then your doctor have to order blood alcohol level specifically. The liver enzyme test will not tell you alcohol level. However, alcohol certainly will affect your liver function. If you have been drinking a lot for many years, alcohol can lead into liver cirrhosis and risk for liver failure and liver cancer. ...Read more

If someone was drinking alcohol every other day over limit, would liver blood tests usually be abnormal if some sort of damage is occurring?

If someone was drinking alcohol every other day over limit, would liver blood tests usually be abnormal if some sort of damage is occurring?

Over limit??: which limit is that. The safe limit for drinking in men is no more than 2 standard drinks (2 12 oz. beers, 2 5 oz. wineglasses of standard wine, 3 oz 80 proof spirits) per day, no more than 14 per week, and no more than 4 on any one occasion. Even at that level, some people will get liver inflammation. Liver enzymes (ALT, AST) are very sensitive to inflammation and will generally be elevated. ...Read more

Blood disorders .What conditions cuase blood to be thin, genteic/disease.Is it liver, bones?Alcohol Intolerant,always have been.what test is needed?

Too general: This would take a textbook to answer. Dozens of common genetic diseases make blood less prone to clot; and there are hundreds of causes of anemia alone. You're fortunate that alcohol does not agree with you, but this is unconnected. If you've been told you have "thin blood", demand a scientific diagnosis. Best wishes. ...Read more
