my son is on adderall (slow fast acting 25m) but only in school. In july he had his blood work and it came back with elevated enzymes ast 68 alt 86. The weeks prior to taking his blood work he ate boxes of donuts and croissants which is high in saturated fats. He is 17, plays basketball and weighs 178 lbs. His pcp is taking further tests to find out what other factors might be in play for his high liver enzymes. So worried.

Hello. My husband has been ill for three weeks now. He went to urgent care today and his blood work came back poor. The doc called us, reported he needs to go to ER now, that his potassium levels are 2, that he could die. Doc also said his liver enzymes are very high as well, along with his his blood pressure being 140/90. He is 35, yellow skin, and very ill. What are the most common diagnosis for this type of situation? We are at ER now but the wait time to be seen is about two hours. I am concerned, don t want to think the worst, but want to be better informed and prepared for what this might mean for my husband s current health and long term health. Thank you.

My 18 year old son has significantly elevated liver enzymes without any symptoms. He was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in Oct 2011..He has had his blood drawn over 30 times since Oct. 2011. We were finally told to stop his meds to see if they were causing the elevated liver enzymes..he repeats his blood work today. We see a Hepatologist Thursday. What are the indicators of meds being the culprit of elevated liver enzymes and how long do you have to stay off meds to get a true result?
