    Weird liver values!

    Hey,

    I've been trying to find information about my current situation but can't really seem to find any specific answers to my problem.
    I took some antibiotics and asked my GP for a liver panel test right after the course of the medications were done.
    here's the bloodwork results:
    ALP: 101 u/l - still in normal range
    ALT: 206 u/l - WHAT HAPPENED?!
    Amylase: 84 u/l - normal
    GGT: 15 u/l - normal
    bilirubin: 7 umol/l - normal

    Is this considered to be alarming in the medical community or what is it considered to be? Since the only test elevated is the ALT and everything else seems to be fine.
    Also is it possible to have jaundice even if ur bilirubin is in the normal range? Not saying that I have jaundice but just wondering.

    Should I be scared of these numbers? Cause my gp said it's nothing to be thinking about as of yet.

    DO YOU HAVE HEP OF ANY KIND? IF NO IT COULD BE ANYTHING. BOOZE AND TYLENOL ARE A BIG NO NO.

    EVEN WITH A STAGE 4 LIVER I CAN TAKE TYLENOL BUT NOT MUCH. I NEVER TAKE IT ANY WAY...BUT IT IS SAFE FOR ME.
    IF WORRIED GET ANOTHER TEST IN A FEW WEEKS.
