Brief Answer:
Good question

Detailed Answer:
hello and thanks for the question.

This really depends on how much alcohol you previously consumed. Most likely your liver function tests should be within normal limits. However if you have a history of chronic alcohol use or chronic liver disease then the enzyme levels maybe elevated.

Thanks again for sending your question. Please let me know if there are some additional concerns that you would like to review regarding this matter.
