Blood Test Results Help Please

Just got my lab work back ...can someone please help me translate
My Ast was 46
My Alt was 67
Are these High? If so what could this be from. I just had gallbladder surgery. Could this be from that . Also had a baby 8 wks ago.
Then there is a RDW under Cell test that is 16% any ideas what this is?
thanks for your help!

They are not that high. They are slightly elevated and yes to both of your questions it could be from having a baby or gall bladder surgery or you could have a fatty liver which is common. Are you on any meds?

I'm not sure about the zoloft do a search online to see if it raises liver enzymes. Alot of drugs do so it wouldn't surprise me if it does. Keep us posted on your liver scan..good luck I'm sure ur ok..Lisa

Re: Blood Test Results Help Please

My scan showed that I have a mild Fatty liver? Nothing else. The Dr said that everything looked good. We are going to check my Enzymes again in three weeks. Thanks for your reply. Its nice to talk to people who know what its like. My husband is probably tired of hearing me talk about it!
Thanks again
Taylor
