In brief: Test for high LFT's
There are 2 kinds of liver enzyme abnormalities--that signal disease of the liver cells or of the bile ducts.
Abnormal liver tests may reflect fatty liver, too much alcohol, toxic exposure, occupational exposures, lot's of viral infections, metabolic problems, familial liver diseases, as well as problems with gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. Start with blood tests to identify possiblities.
