    Liver and asthma?

    I posted last week about going to the ER and guess where we ended up? The ER. My son is improving nicely, however, when I looked at the blood work results from the ER visit I was alarmed by his ALT/AST numbers.

    AST normal is 10-39, my son's was 82.
    ALT normal is 15-60; son's was 182!

    Yikes! The doc didn't mention these numbers at all when we talked, she just said his WBC was elevated because he was sick.

    Son is on 2nd round of prednisone, 3 antibiotics, 2 inhalers , albuterol/nebuluzizer every 4 hours, Flonase, Zyrtec, montelucast and a few OTC meds.

    Could this be the cause of the elevated liver tests? ALL other tests were normal.

    My son is 18.
