Mild Fever but abnormal LFT results.
Hi Dr.

I have on an off mild fever but my LFT results are through the roof.
AST :52
ALT: 369
Bilurbin Total, 1.5
Alk. Phosphate 610
GGT 302.

On testing for Hep A, I was found to have the virus previously ( I had it at younger age). I do not have Hep B. My doctors are trying to figure out, why is the alkaline phosphate and ALT so high? Any input on that. I am in my late 30's.

Hello,
Alcohol liver damage, hepatitis C, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease are the most common causes of aminotransferase abnormalities in adults. A high Alk phosphatase is due to intrahepatic or extra hepatic obstruction, cholestasis from medication, or infiltrative disease like cancer or granulomas. Viral hepatitis causes elevation of transaminases usually exceeding 1000 IU and you have already ruled out hepatitis A and B.You may need additional tests like ultrasound abdomen and tests for above mentioned causes. A clinical examination and correlation with test results is very important. Discuss your concerns with your attending doctor. I hope you find this information useful.
Best luck and regards!
