Raises liver enzymes 45

Posted , 6 users are following.


I've just had results of 45 for my liver enzymes, that's all the doctor said and didn't say exactly what that was in reference to. Apparently this is slightly raised and he said 41 was the top limit.

I've never felt pain on or around my liver but I have since he pressed on my tummy to feel it (3 days ago)

I have been referred to have an ultrasound and further blood tests, I'm 34 and really scared as I have a history of drinking quite a bit but have stopped smoking and drinking a few months ago. I never drank daisy or anything, just had issues stopping when I started, so have stopped cololeltey for the last 9 weeks. In no way related to a liver issue I was aware of.

I just wanted to know does this number reflect the type of damage done? Or is it not a reflecting at all, ie slight raise slight could mean only slight damage. I'm actually having panic attacks and feeling really scared about all of this.

I have had issues with my eyes, inflammation and general fatigue. I am being investigated for auto immune disorders and had many blood tests and this was flagged up on a recent test.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I went to the ER bc I have phnemoniua and the day before yesterday they ran a blood test didn't say 2 words came in and done a sonogram of my "gallbladder" walked out. Dr came in and said everything looks great here's 5 scripts (for phnemoniua)

    I get home the last 2 days I can't eat I have no want to eat. Just not hungry. I'm downing water almost 32 bottles in 2 days but so hydrated but my mouth has a copper taste and horrible cotton mouth.

    I'm was not on any meds.at the time of or prior to test. I had eaten 6 hrs before.

    my ALT was 322

    My AST was 261

    APT was 155

    Why do you think it's this high?

    I'm 34 and I don't drink and smoke!
