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.
