Re: Elevated AST/ALT- increased testosterone
Thanks for he information! I appreciate it. On a side note about "normal", this is something to think about. I just spoke with my girlfriend about this and she is a drug rep for Hepatitis drugs and has been doing it for a decade. She explained it to me like this. The normal range really doesn't mean much especially since labs are all different, sometimes by 30-40%. Anyway, she said everyone's "normal" is different and just because you are in the normal range for a lab doesn't mean that's necessarily your normal range. For instance, if you've had tests before and you ALT is 15 or so a few years in a row but now you are on medications and your ALT is 45 (which is normal range for some labs), you are 3 times your normal. I've never thought about it like that but it was an interesting perspective and I think knowing what your normal is off of meds and now on meds might a good indicator of if it is truly high or not. Just food for thought!
