This is a Hepatitis C forum. Do you have Hep C?

If you don't have Hep C then you should get blood test to see why your LFT's are elevated. Definitely get a hep panel checking for all kinds of Hep.

Please keep in mind that many things can cause high LFT's, drinking alcohol 24-48 hrs before blood test, medications, even strenuous exercise.

Best of luck

I could not have said it better than Copyman. Elevated LFTs could be caused by just about anything. I would ask for a Hep panel just to rule that out.
