best to go for repeat testing. How are your other liver test results like bilirubin? If only liver enzymes are high it may be non specific. 65 is very mild elevation anyway.

see these enzymes r just 1 1/2 times raised ....not too worrying esp if your appetite is good and ur bowel is functioning well........these sometimes rise in slight viral illnesses or at times by medicines .... just take boil food & qbserve ur appetite ,,if itis fine .....then dont worry

What could a high SGPT (134), high SGOT (65), high GGTP (182) and high AP (173) indicate. Just 3 months back I had borderline high SGPT and GGTP readings. Have completely cut don on alcohol and fried stuff. So was actually expecting a better set of results. These are a bit of a shocker. Am on cholesterol reducing drugs (statin). Is there any connection to that?

I went for my 6 mo blood check and had high liver enzyme levels of 46 AST and 70 LST. Doctor requested second test week later it it was much higher 65 AASY and 170 LST. I am on a minimal dosage of staten for past year and half. I drink occasionally maybe total of 5 in a week. Why are these so elevated and why did it go up so quickly. I am a blood donor and prior to first test I had donated double red cells. Any idea what is happening?

Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?

Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.

Thanks
