LabCorp
AST (0 - 40)
ALT (0 - 32)

I remember you saying your BF finished treatment 4 months ago so is this a really big hike from his EOT labs? (I guess I am saying what was his EOT AST & ALT)

Another factor that can give a "false positive" for high alt and ast scores is heavy weightlifting/bodybuilding. Skeletal muscles, when broke down, will also release these enzymes (alt and ast) into the bloodstream. My alt and ast scores haven't been normal even when und at 4 weeks. In fact they were there highest (alt-106 and ast-84) on my week 12 draw...which was still UND. 2 days before the draw I had an extremely heavy and long leg training day.

It usually took us 3 days to get our results back. Ur levels look good their in the average range. My boyfriends levels went down while on treatment. They were high before treatment.
