    Question Too much elevated ALT level

    Hello,

    Im 22 male. I have consistently been recorded with having high levels of ALT. Currently(tested 5 weeks ago) it is 122. It has been in the hundereds for the last 8-12 months. With the highest being 176 in July this year.

    I also have fatty liver, NASH that is.

    I just wanted to ask if there was a relationship between the two or are the two variables independent of each other.

    Also what can be done to reduce ALT levels and fatty liver?

    I am on medicines for the last four weeks and am also on a very strict diet no junk food, fats etc etc. And lots and lots of fruits and veggies. Hope this will help.

    Besides this what else can i do? And also what are the health risks of having such high ALT levels and a fatty liver???

    Thankz

    High ALT

    I also was recently diagnosed with HIGH ALT but not nearly as high as yours. What I'm doing is juicing using beets, dandellion, parsley & carrots. Beets & dandellion are especially good for the liver. I ADD to the juice Aloe Vera & Milk Thistle tincture. I'm also taking 6 tablets each day of LiverAid by Liverite which can be purchased in any healthfood store. I'm also on a strict vegetarian diet. I plan to also do Coffee Enemas (must use organic coffee) which rids the liver of toxins (do a search: Coffee Enema ). I plan to be retested in 3 months. At this stage, I plan to use all natural versus drugs. I know what caused my ALT to rise: Alcohol and lots of it however there are other causes such as Atkins Diet and Cholesterol Drugs. What are your numbers for AST, ALP, Total Bilirubin and Albumin?

    The last time i got tested i only went for ALT. That was on 10/15/03 and the ALT figure was 122 I.U/L.

    However, i had a complete profile test back in 06/09/03. The following were the results of that test:


    S. TOTAL BILIRUBIN 0.9 mg/dl
    S. DIRECT BILIRUBIN 0.1 mg/dl
    S. INDIRECT BILIRUBIN 0.8 mg/dl
    GAMMA GT 53 I.U/L
    ALT 176 I.U/L
    ALKALINE PHOSPHATE 85 I.U/L


    I didnt test for albumin.


    Moreover, i have been diagnosed with NASH.

    Eversince being diagnosed with NASH (10/21/03) i have been on a strict diet and really watching my food. I have also lost 10-11 lbs so far. I am now currently 189 lbs at a height of 5'9.5 .

    Howl ogn does it take for normalization of ALT figure? And when should i go for a re-test?

    Also can u suggest me some good links?

    Thankz

    Re: Too much elevated ALT level

    How common is a negative reaction to a statin drug (cholesterol lowering medication)?

    Also, milk thistle is a good one to take for getting your liver stronger and repairing damage.
