Elevated liver enzymes. Can allergy shots cause this?

I have always had normal liver enzymes. On routine blood last week my ggt was 143 but my AST was only 28 and my ALT was 40. I had a sonogram yesterday and do not know results as yet. My question is if allergy shots can affect this high number. I am allergic to just about everything and get shots weekly but only began a little over a year ago. I am 63.

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for the querry.
I dont think these 2 are related. You should find some another cause of elevated LFT. GGt may suggest alcoohlic abuse or excessive exercise. Also it can be raised in some other conditions. You should also do viral markers to rule this out. Ultrasounds will show is there any serious liver damage. Till you find it you should gollow some ot hte hepatic diet, avoid alcohol and toxic drugs invludint some antihistaminics.ALso do frequent LFT check uos, at leas once in 2 months. Wish you good health.
