Liver enzymes elevated. Had liver panel done. Enzyme levels dropped to 105. Dangerous levels?

I had a blood work up done in July in which my liver enzymes were elevated at 108. My GP thought his might be due to gallbladder removal in June. (No stones just a non functioning gallbladder). I had a liver panel done in October that showed my levels had dropped to 105. My doctor has stopped my Paxil (20mg). But I continue to take 40 mg of prosec due to severe acid reflux . Are these levels considered dangerous? I go back for repeat lab work at the end if the month. Thank you for your time!

Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
these are moderately elevated LFTs but it require further evaluation to verify the exact cause of it. Most commonly this is just fatty liver or gallbladder issue but also it may indicate viral hepatitis,autoimmune hepatitis or some other less common disorder. you should change dietary habits and do liver ultrasound or CT scan to see is there sign of liver fibrosis.

Wish you good health. Regards.
