Hi what causes high GGT, AST and ALT? No hepatitis and don't drink alcohol or do drugs any relations to high LDL and high triglycerides?

If your liver tests are abnormal, the minimum that you need is a repeat of the tests in 1 to 2 months. If they are still elevated, then further evaluation will be necessary.

9 y/o obese- high triglycerides, low HDL and ALT of 49. Doc recommended diet/exercise. Any other tests needed? Any activity restrictions required?
ALT is 63, AST normal range. I am obese, high triglycerides, bad eating, and pretty
sedentary. Diet and exercise to get levels down? Any supplements you would recommend in addition? I hear the liver is resilient, responds well to lifestyle changes.

The liver is very resilient, but recover requires major changes, which are often difficult to make and even more difficult to maintain. It requires a great deal of determination and consistency.

Make sure to check your cholesterol as well to rule out fatty liver infiltration from elevated triglycerides or cholesterol. ...Read more
Needs clarification: Ideally your triglycerides would be less than 125 mg/dl and the alt, a liver enzyme, is slightly elevated which may be due to fatty liver associated with excess body weight and blood sugar. The confusing thing is your reported glucose: 12 is not compatible with life so i wonder if you mean hemoglobin a1c or glycosylated hemoglobin. If that is 12, you have uncontrolled diabetes &need urgent care. ...Read more

Comply with workup: Your physician may ask you to repeat the liver tests off alcohol, Ibuprofen and other meds. If it's still up, you'll be checked for viral and immune hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's, perhaps antitrypsin deficiency; if no diagnosis is forthcoming, and especially if you are ultrasounded and have fat in your liver, you may end up with an rx to get back into some intensive physical fitness. ...Read more
