high liver functions

hello,
I have EDNOS. yesterday I went to my doctor and she told me that I am slightly enemic, but that the more concerning issue was that my liver functions are 3x higher than they should be, and she didn't know why. Could my eating disorder have caused this?

Yes, the anemia for sure(the deficient anemias if you are not eating enough iron, B12 or folic acid) and possibly the liver function test. There are several different levels that liver function tests can tell us, I would have to the which ones were affected to give the reasoning behind it other wise it would be speculation.

well I'm getting more tests done, but the ones I know so far are AST(SGOT) is at 85 and ALT(SGPT) is at 103. If that helps.
