Patient Comments: Liver Blood Tests - Test

What were the results of your liver blood test?

Comment from: girlygirl, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: April 06

Just got a call from my doctors office and my liver blood test came back "slightly elevated". My ast51 and alt43. I asked if we could rerun the test in 3mo. and he said "not necessary". I have to get the test every 6mo. because I am on a statin drug. I'm sure he doesn't suspect that I am a heavy drinker of 4-5 glasses of wine per day and have been doing so for 25yrs. I have not been totally honest with him on that because I don't look the type. I'm scared, but addicted.

I had a distal pancreatectomy a year and half ago due to a mass that was found. The mass was a mucinous cystadenoma. I had nothing but trouble after that surgery. At the time of that diagnosis, the doctors found a hemangioma on my liver. They said it was nothing to be concerned about. I went in for a yearly health screening at work. I am a very healthy, fit, 35 year old woman who exercises 3-5 times per week and eats healthy. The day of the screening, my blood pressure was 140/85. My usual range is 105/65. My labwork came back with elevated SGOT/AST and low CO2 level.

My recent liver blood test results showed high AST and ALT, 172 and 218 respectively along with serum lipase at 72U/L. The tests were done a few days after experiencing severe diarrhea.

I had my ALT checked today. It was 258. Almost 5 times higher than the upper limit of normal. I do have rheumatoid arthritis and take 10mg of prednisone a day and humira once a week. I am also a type 2 diabetic and take metformin. I do not take any Tylenol or products with Tylenol in them. I am on a statin for my high cholesterol. I am worried as to what has caused the high numbers. I have had slightly elevated ALT before but never this high.

My doctor called and said my liver enzyme levels were elevated. I am an alcoholic and have been for over 20 years. I am freaking out. My levels were 67. I don't really know what that means. I have quit drinking.
