Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

Only anabolic steroids affect liver.
Cefuroxime can cause transient elevation of liver enzymes.

You can repeat liver panel after 4 weeks to see if the enzymes are still elevated.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
