In brief: Liver enzymes

Do you take any supplements for weightlifting? Do you take any medicines, like a statin for cholesterol? How much alcohol do you drink? Do you use Anabolic steroids to increase muscle mass? Have you ever had or been exposed to hepatitis b or c (through blood or body fluids)? The answers to these & other questions may shed light on your question.

Agree with Dr. L.
Weight lifting per se would not affect liver enzymes. If you take any drugs or alcohol, stop entirely and retest in 3-6 months.
