Re: how high is a 72 ALT on a blood test
ALT normal values differ which each lab, so you need to know what the lab uses as normals to know how high it is. But generally, ALT levels should be between 4-36. 72 is a little high, but I have seen them as high as several thousands so its not like your liver is shutting down. ALT is typically elevated with liver damage or disease, but can be elevated by such things as pancreas problems, heart problems, medications, alcohol use, even vigorous exercise. A person with hepatitis will usually have ALT levels over 500. Hope that helps.
