hi.
thanks for posting query at hcm.

to the best of my knowledge , i do not know any case in which whey protein caused liver damage

moreover, 66 value should not be concerning.
usually values of two times the upper limit of normal ( or abover 85 to 100) maybe properly investigated.

you may decrease the duration and intensity of workout and recheck liver enzymes after few weeks .
hope to answer your concern
regards

Dr Tayyab Malik
