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?
