In brief: 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.

In brief: Alcohol

Alcohol alone can do it .
Why are you drinking and taking valium too . Refrain from all alcohol use , do not take tylenol (acetaminophen) at all either . If you have been taking valium regularly that don't stop it suddenly , keep taking it to prevent withdrawal sx . If you have any shakes or tremors consults your pcp
