@Nic01:  ALT is alanine transaminase, an enzyme produced in the cells of the liver. We just learned about it in my path class.

Glad everything went ok!!

What are some common reasons for abnormal liver tests?

Abnormal liver tests may be detected in the blood in a variety of liver conditions.

  • Mild to moderate elevations of the liver enzymes are common. They are often unexpectedly encountered on routine blood screening tests in otherwise healthy individuals. The AST and ALT levels in such cases are usually between twice the upper limits of normal and several hundred units/liter. One of the most common cause of mild to moderate elevations of these liver tests is a condition referred to as fatty liver. In the United States, the most frequent cause of fatty liver is alcohol abuse. Other causes of fatty liver include diabetes mellitus and obesity.
  • Chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C is a cause of chronic mild to moderate liver enzyme elevations.
  • Chronic and acute alcohol use is also a common cause of abnormal liver tests.
  • Some medications can cause mild to moderate increase in the liver enzymes.
