Hemangioma on liver, Hashimoto's disease, elevated ALT, AST, bilrubin. Cause of elevation?

Hello Everyone, I have had slightly elevated ALT , AST and Tbili for two years now. I have a hemangioma on my liver , that is of significant size. I am wondering if my elevated numbers are because of this and just continue monitorring or if I should push for more answers. I do have some history of liver problems on my mothers side, but otherwise and a healthy 33 yo female with hashimoto s. please advise.

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
Heamngiomas dont cause LFT eleavtion usually and I think that you should try to find other causes of elevated LFTs. you ned to do ct scan and liver biopsy. but slight lft elevation dont require any treatment and it should be just followed up. if there is persisten elevation then you need to do more detailed gastroenterolgoic wotk up. till that try to efollow hepatoiprotective diet,avoid alcohol and smoking and regulate your body mass.
Wish you good health. Regards
