    I'm no expert, except when it comes to the alcohol bit and the usual indicator GGT looks fine.

    My ALT is 66 and I did point this to my GP,he didn't react alarming,also when I had copy of my blood tests there wasn't any comment on the liver tests function ,,action needs taken'' I guess if there was anything alarming there will be a notes from the Lab and doctors will tell me.however I know that this is abnormal and is good to gone down to the limit 45.

    Already took action to eat healthy and reduce the drinking at least 20% and will recheck in two months time.

    I don't know where in the world are you but in UK seems that if your ALT measures is 50 I guess the doctors seems to think is fine.

    Try to consume organic Beetroot juice with Carot juice in the morning before coffee and maybe some milk thistle and not drink too much and it probably will go down.

    Suggest you give up the booze for a while mate. Also, start drinking liver cleansing teas and take a liver herbal formula with Dandelion and Milk thistle etc.

    It all helps.

    FYI I have a slightly elevated ALT as well and now these recent GB attacks.

    My advice to you is to give up the bad food and hard alcohol. It's very hard, but you've just got to do it. At the very least cut back. Do more exercise and cut back on fatty foods.
