Liver problems
pznabyss posted:
I'm 18 years old, and after my doctor told me that my liver enzymes were elevated I was sent to a GI doctor.

Normal AST is 40 and ALT is about 56. My blood test results showed AST levels of about 200, and ALT levels of about 120 I think. This would usually mean hepatitis, but the sonogram showed a normal liver, so it's not inflamed.

I previously used some supplements while working out, but stopped using them 2 weeks prior to the first blood test. I stopped using them because a week before that I had clay colored stool once.

If anyone could give me their opinions on what this could be. I just need some educated guesses while I wait until Wednesday to find out my results.

Hi Pznabyss,

I'm sorry no one here had any ideas for you. It's now well past your appointment time... how did that go?
pznabyss replied to Caprice_WebMD_Staff's response:
Well, I got my blood work back, everything is back in the normal range. It was most likely the mass gainer I took for 3-5 weeks that overworked my liver, but since I stopped using it, my levels dropped.

No more supplements for me now, just healthy homemade food.
