Your alt is slightly elevated so it would be more of an indication that the liver is under stress. Is your GGT elevated aswell?
no just ALT my HDL cholestrol was too low he said i think it was 33 my LDL was fine.
my glucose was 1 point over as well it was suppose to have a max range of like 99 and it was 100.
other than that he says my heart/lung sound fine but wants to get an EKG just incase but i can't afford it at the moment due to no insurance my kidneys are also fine.
He wants me to test again in 3 months but he did give me lisinopril-hctz for high blood pressure of which i take a potassium pill as well because i had swelling in my legs which is now controlled my average reading i am sending to him soon as he requested
