Reports show high levels of ALT, AST, BUN. Artery from heart ton liver blocked. Suggestions?

I just got lab results back and the results show that the ALT , AST, & BUN are high. I know that the artery from my heart to my liver is partially blocked, and might be causing the problem. Is there anything I can do to prevent further blockage. I take generic lipitor for Cholesterol, exercise nearly every day, eat very little red meat, etc. Any suggestions?

Dear mister, there is no any prevention but changing lifestyle as you said so just keep watching for your lipids levels and follow dietary guidelines. The most blood delivery to liver comes from portal vein (75%) and the other from hepatic artery 25% so even significant cronic developed thrombosis of artery wouldnt have some serious consequences. Despite it you should try to prevent further formation of atherosclerosis not only in this artey but also in all other especially in heart and extremities. Also you should avoid risks that cause liver damage such as alcohol, some medications and viral hepatitis.

Wish you good health, Dr. Ivan Romic (Rominho)
