    How high is my ALT? Is it slightly elevated or high?I've been reading different post were someone says their ALT is 3,000 I went to my doctor because I was having cramping and diarhea mainly after eating greasy foods, heartburn, acid reflux. She gave me dicyclomine, which has helped. She wants to do a liver function test. I have dry skin but lately it's been more than normal.

    Why does she want to do more blood test? What is she looking for? Thank you

    Elevated a reasonable amount, but it really depends on what has caused it.

    Your doctor wants to do more tests to find out what the problem is. She is probably looking for the answer, which she doesn't know, hence the need for tests.

    Your liver is just as important as your heart and brain, it controls many functions of the body.

    I'm just confused I have read so much information the last couple of days. I think she did the live function test already, that is how I received the ALT information.
