Will having too much of wine elevate liver enzymes?

Hi I am a 38 year old women of slim build. I exercise daily and maybe once every two weeks I have a couple of wines. On Friday I had way too many, which is not my usual thing, but it happened. I have not had any alcohol since and I am due to have a blood test on Friday and am worried that this may have elevated my liver enzymes. In the past my liver has always been in the normal range. Do you think this will elevate my liver enzymes alot? Thank you

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
Liver is the organ that take up all the alcohol your taking and convert in to various metabolic products by using its enzymes.
so when ever you take alcohol load on the liver is increased more amount of enzymes are produced to covert this alcohol to various products.
naturally when ever you take excess alcohol your enzymes will be elevated.
