How? blood work disaster

In April I had a complete blood work up. everything was normal...not even on the ends of normal..but pretty much in the middle. my ALT was 22, for example. I just had tests redone, and my ALT is 37??? How, I don't drink more now. I haven't changed any medications. I did lose 7-8 pounds putting me down to 98 pounds. My TSH in July was like 1.8. the recent test resulted in a TSH of 9.3. How?

Can this be reversed?

The only result I understand is the vitamin D deficiency because it is winter and i get little to no sunlight.

when i said ALT, I meant AST. still normal, but much elevated.

another thought about the TSH level. The hormone itself is in the low normal range. does this mean i have hypothyroidism? another note: i suffered a severe fall a few days before this test result in a facial contusion and black eye. could that have anything to do with elevated TSH levels?

Stop worrying about your AST levels. The normal range is 8-48 (depending on the lab used).

Discuss your TSH levels with the physician who ordered this lab work.
