... My husband has very high liver enzymes. AST = 116, ALT = 251 and GGT = 290.
Tests were repeated after three weeks and were still the same. All other bloodwork is totally normal, no hepatitis, no weird white or red blood cells, normal protein, albumen, bilirubin, they've run everything. He had a liver/gallbladder/pancreas ultrasound done which our doctor described as... (6 replies)
... I just read my blood test results from the community Health Fair that came in the mail while I was out of town the last week. They showed I had "High" levels in 3 tests that point to liver issues, as best I can tell. Here they are:
GGT of 207 (3-85 is normal)
AST (SGOT) is 87 (10-35 is normal)
ALT (SGPT) is 94 (9-60 is normal)
My on-line research indicates that the ratio... (0 replies)
... I wasnt feeling well and my gp did a load of bloods and my alt came back high at 94. Is this extremely high and should i be worried? I had further bloods done for hepatitis etc and all were fine. I had an ultrasound scan which was fine apart from a small galstone. I saw a gastroeneterologist 2 weeks ago and he didnt even examine me and just took another 10 vials of blood to... (1 replies)
... Hi -
Even if your sweetheart has cirrhosis, IF he will get help and stop drinking NOW - then his liver may eventually and sufficiently recover for him to have a reasonably normal life. Assuming that there is nothing else (such as a hepatitis virus) contributing to his liver damage, then by completely removing alcohol - and with positive dietary and lifestyle changes, the...

... Hi BillinSD, thank you for your reply, they only gave us the numbers on AST, ALP & the GGT, I didn't know anything about a ALT. I've talked to him about stopping and he has it in his head that he has cirrhosis and there is no need to stop now even though he had me to read off the symptoms. I told him he needs to go to the doctor to find out whats going on and he won't go, so I... (7 replies)

Ive just got my doctors results and they said my GGT has risen from 140 to 240, my sodium is also low (they didn't say how much) since my last blood test 3 months ago.

... I would seek a specialist opinion on your issue. The AST and ALT is worrisome- however it could be from medication or even supplements. HCG shots plus a fatty liver will cause high liver enzymes and may have to be stopped for a period of time. Consult your doctor.
I feel sure that your doctor had some advise and/or more tests. If not then I would make an appointment... (3 replies)
