Can High ALT Levels Be Caused By Alcohol Consumption?

I am taking Humira for my Psorasis and my recent blood tests have shown ALT levels of 66- my specialist said he will retest me in a months time and hopefully see if it will go down!! I must admit I have recently been overdrinking due to a lot of pressures!could this be the reason why an increase or could it be the medication!! Any advice on getting this lower for my future blood test??

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Alcohol can raise the ALT and other liver parameters. Humira is not entirely linked to causing high levels of ALT. Suggest you to stop alcohol consumption in the immediate, with raised ALT.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
