MSM and Liver Enzymes?

At 48 I went in for a full physical and was surprised that I had elevated liver enzymes, ALT 66 AST 41. As a guy who regularly exercises, good weight and diet with low/moderate alcohol I was surprised by this. My doctor took more blood and ran a Hep test. That was negative so he scheduled a ultrasound, At this time I started taking milk thistle. The ultrasound was normal so he took another blood test since it had been about a month since the first one. The ALT was now 61 and the AST was 39. He noticed the slight drop and decided to wait a couple months and re-test.

I then researched all my supplements online and stumbled upon an article on MSM. It stated that one should stop taking the MSM 4 days before a liver enzyme blood test because it could lead to a false positive.

Can anyone verify this? Many thanks.

UPDATE

After two months of waiting I went in for another liver panel today. Knowing that this day was coming I stopped taking MSM and other supplements four days prior. The panel came out normal across the board. What a relief!

Hope this helps someone...
