Liver function tests done. Am I safe?

Hello I am 23 years old Pakistani male the other day i went in for a Liver function test on 19/01/2013 on 2pm (because i want to use Whey protein isolate for amateur use not professional ) I have an athletic body but due to loads of work I can t find reasonable time to hit the gym but recently I have started jogging running and mild gym routine so I wanted to see if my Liver is functioning well to use the supplement without any complications LFT (LIVER FUNCTION TEST) Result(s) NORMAL RANGE Total Bilirubin 0.6 mg/dl 0-10 Direct Bilirubin 0.11 mg/dl 0-0.25 Alkaline Phosphatase 217 u/l 80-270 SGPT 93 u/l 0-43 Gamma GT 41 u/l 10-50 Now I just want know if this is alarming or not ? because I have heard that one should not perform hard physical routine like weightlifting,body building ....Mostly bodybuilders have high SGPT because of muscle fiber breakage and recovery ......

thanks for writing in.
Increased intake of protein can cause an increase in BUN and creatinine which are functions of the kidney. A marginal increase in SGPT may not be worrisome at all . However ensure that you gradually increase the duration of work out and not suddenly.
With regards
