Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Usually if the Liver enzymes are elevated more than 3 times above normal it is pathological. Otherwise not to worry. Has she been tested for Hepatitis virus infection. You should provide information on which enzymes are high then we can be in better position to offer advice. Let her eat less fat diet. Eat more fresh fruits an green leafy vegetables. Drink enough water.

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. You need to specifically mention the enzyme levels. You should get your mother evaluated as she may be developing liver cirrhosis. But as you said you mom has stopped drinking her enzyme levels would reduce with time if some irreparable damage has not occured to liver. It would be advisable to you get her evaluated once by a specialist. Wish you good health.

Hello.Welcome.Liver enzymes remain elevated for quite sometime after stopping alcohol intake.It is good she doesn't have any problem.Keep a regular check on her liver enzymes and keep getting a regular USG abdomen done.If she doesn't start drinking again she would be normal.Good luck.

Everytime I get blood work done, my AST and ALT levels show they are rising. AST is now at 57 and ALT is at 80. My Dr also did several Hep tests all negative. Still this scares me. I do social drink which I will stop but beyond that what else can I do to remedy this? When do the levels become dangerously high?

I hope so! Sclerotic liver was a word just used to me after a test taken that showed high portal tension, I also had a Transjugular biopsy of the liver today as well. Without even getting back the results of the biopsy yet , the doctor just told me my liver is sclerotic! This is extremely crushing news to me as I am a liver recipient of a new transplantthat was done in April 2012, and I have been protecting and trying very hard to take very good care of my health so I can begin to enjoy my new opportunity at life. I am crushed and he had no good explanation of what this new word thrown out at me now means.

Hello. I have been having intense itching of the skin with no rash for about three months. Cortizone creams and antifungals or lotions for dry skin do not help at all. The itching can occur anywhere and moves from place to place. It has occured on my wrists, ankles, legs, feet, and back at various times. I wondered if there were any possible internal causes such as kidney or liver problems that could cause this. What tests could be run to find out? I am miserable!
