Unhappy liver enzymes raised-concerned

well i had my blood work done 3 weeks ago and my AST -48 , ALT 110., HAD THE test done again yesterday and the results were AST 54., ALT 158...im concerned cause they went up and so is my DR. she is having me see a specialist..she test me for hep. C and i was negative but could they be elevated cause ive gained 10-15 lbs and eating more fatty foods ?? in the past all liver enzymes have been fine...any ideas? im concerned

i do eat a high protein diet and excercise regulary and take protein suppliments like Glutamine,creatine...

oh ya and im taking Accupril for high blood pressure ...could this rise it?

Mine went down after a week, but was alcohol and diet related! With talking with people and reading, that high protein can cause liver problems if u don't keep the liver flushed!

Good Luck! Being Hep Free, is a big relief

Re: liver enzymes raised-concerned

ok so i went to the Liver specialist today and he said there were NO signs wahtsoever of any liver problems due to the rise in my ALT levels at 158...he said it probably has to do with the gain in weight...i had to educate him on my diet of high protein and such for bodybuilding..he basically said that when i start to diet and lower my bodyfat to have my blood work done again and he is sure it will be normal...

Re: liver enzymes raised-concerned

my husband (age 27) is now going through a series of tests due to elevated liver enzymes. he too was lifting weights and taking creatine, etc., for a couple of weeks leading up to his first blood test. he's being tested today for hep b and c. he'll be undergoing a sonogram on monday. he told the doctor about the weightlifting and creatine, but the doc didn't think it would have made his levels so high. i don't remember the exacts, but alt and ast were 200 and 300. what did your doc say about the weightlifting and creatine use?

Re: liver enzymes raised-concerned

well weightlifting can raise them cause your breaking down muscle and muscle damage can show up in your liver enzymes and creatin will also raise levels not sure about liver but kidneys enzymes i was told it would alittle..200 and 300 is real high,something to look at...if he is using steriods that will raise them while he is on them also....
