What were the results of your liver blood test?

Comment from: Pork Rind, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: October 05

I had a physical/blood test for my 60th birthday. I knew I had been drinking too much and my weight shot up to 275 lb. Initial results from my liver blood test 1 month ago are AST 151 and ALT 225; scary. I retested in about 35 days with total alcohol abstinence and 20 lb. weight loss and the results were AST 28, ALT 43. I believe I dodged a bullet and I'll never drink again.

I found out that I had hepatitis C in 1998. I tried interferon twice. I have a very high viral count, my last liver blood test showed all numbers in the normal range including bilirubin total of 0.7. The only numbers that were out of range and high were AST (SGOT) 99 and ALT (SGPT) 158. I've had liver biopsy and it showed nothing abnormal. I take very high amounts of vitamin C every day.

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.
