Hello I have elevated liver enzymes Ast and alt mid forty
I have elevated liver enzymes. Ast and alt mid forty range. Igg at 29. Fibroscan and ct and ultrasound all good. My hepatologist thought because of my igg i should be tested for autoimmune hep. All tests were negative. Also tested for hep a b c. I used to drink about 10 drinks per week but have stopped for the last 2 months. Still not a change in enzymes. Any ideas what this could be? I do take synthroid because of hashimotos.
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Your liver enzymes are only mildly elevated and that can be present even among normal people who will be completely asymptomatic. It could indicate a more fatty diet or people with slightly higher BMI can also have slightly deranged liver enzymes.
As of now, there is no need to do further investigations or other intervention. I will advise you to avoid drinking as well as avoid intake of very fatty or spicy food. Have more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Try to exercise daily for 30-45 minutes and repeat the values after 3 months. If you want prophylactically you can take silymarin syrup two teaspoons twice daily for 1 month. This will also enhance faster recovery.
Hope this was helpful,
