Patient Comments: Liver Blood Tests - Test

What were the results of your liver blood test?

Comment from: Jemima, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: February 25

After a couple of episodes of abdominal pain my doctor ordered a liver function test which resulted in a GGT of 1565 and the doctor advised me to stop drinking alcohol as I had liver damage. After months of more pain and tests, I ended up in ITC for 10 days with gall stones blocking the biliary duct, which had to be removed by endoscope. I had my gall bladder removed 4 weeks ago and my GGT is now a more normal 44.

Seven weeks ago I landed in the emergency room with jaundice. My liver blood tests showed my ALT and AST to be 3200. After a week's stay in the hospital, blood tests, MRCP, and biopsy it was determined to be an allergic reaction to Macrobid. My AST is now 265 and ALT is 166. I'm still on a ton of medicines, but my numbers are still dropping.

I just received my liver blood test results showing high alanine and aspartate levels. I'm scheduled to have an ultrasound done.

My 9 month old daughter has had several liver blood tests, now saying her ALT is 1030 and her AST is 400. She is also having high levels of potassium and a few others. Hepatitis A and B are negative, she doesn't have jaundice. She has been sick for 2 months with a few different things mainly vomiting and diarrhea. I am seeing a gastroenterologist in a couple weeks.

My liver level was 57, and the doctor said normal was 40. I have been recently drinking heavily, though I have now abstained.
