Had Bloodwork Last Week - ALT Increased To 44 Since
What could cause that? One of my medications?
May I know your medications...
At the outset, ALT value of 44 is not concerning. It becomes significant when levels are more than 2-3 times normal values. Therefore I would not be overly worried about this ALT value.
The slight increment in levels may or may not be due to medications. May I know the list of drugs you are on to verify.
Some of these drugs may effect liver enzyme.
Some of the medicines especially atorvastatin are known to effect liver, thereby raising liver enzymes. Besides atorvastatin, ezetimibe and very rarely metoprolol may influence ALT results.
Having said that, as I mentioned earlier, currently ALT values are insignificant and do not warrant concerns or changes to medications. If needed (though not indicated), you may continue to monitor ALT / AST results every 6 months.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
