low liver enzymes?
I'm having trouble finding information on the meaning of LOW liver enzyme readings.  Recent bloodwork for me showed ast/sgot at 12 u/l and alt/sgpt at 6 u/l.  I know I don't want high readings - had some trouble with medication induced jaundice earlier this year - but those readings seem freaky.  

I also had low CO2 (22) and a ridiculously low cGFR (2), which I figure must be a mistake, because surely I'd be showing signs of severe problems.  

My thyroid function was all our of whack, with a low T3 and T4 and also thyroid peroxidase antibodies of 249.  We're working on getting that back under control.  

Could the thyroid issue be affecting the liver enzyme readings?  And is that perhaps why my doc didn't mention them?  I will be getting the thyroid stuff rechecked in three months - should I get the other things checked out again then, too?

Ok, first I hope you'll avoid above spammer.

Low thyroid hormones, and medication you used may both result in low liver enzymes OR in false results. You should discuss this with your endocrinologist or GI, not with GP.
