Does alcohol consumption affect liver enzyme results?
no correlation, alcohol may contribute
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Alcohol use can affect liver enzyme results so it is possible that this contributed to the slight increase.
It is only mildly above normal range, so it is not at a concern level as yet.
In some persons, increased liver enzymes may also be related to non alcoholic fatty liver disease. This is the build up of fat and inflammation in the liver due to diet , decreased activity.
Since the increase is slight, a repeat can be considered in 6 to 12 months unless indicated otherwise.
In terms of the urinary creatinine, the normal maximum reference range for an adult male is 20 to 25 mg/kg/day, this means up to 1575 mg a day for a average 70 kg male.
This varies according to water intake and output.
The alcohol use would have normally caused increased urination and decrease the fluid present in the body unless it was appropriately replaced.
Your value is not alarming and not related to the liver enzyme result.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
decrease alcohol use, healthy diet and activity
You can reduce alcohol intake and also , if it is diet or activity related (non alcoholic fatty liver disease)- increase physical activity and the use of healthy foods.
