I am a 40 yr old female, I recently had my yearly blood work done, and the results on it was all in range except my Ast level was a 9, and my alt level was a 4, which on my labs are below (out of range), I tried looking on the internet, but all I read are meanings for high level (out of range) results, My doctor says as long as the others are in range, there is no concern for those levels, I was a heavy drinker in my 20's I now drink about 6-7 beers on Fridays and Saturday, could these results be alcohol related.
My doc has never run a GGT, many don't. It is another liver enzyme. From what I have read ALT and AST are much beter indicators of liver health. With those two being so low I really wouldn't worry especially if all the other liver enzymes were normal.
I have a website that I found that explains the results of a CBC and LFTs but it is at home in my files. I will pull it out over the weeked and post it on Monday for you. It does a great job of explaining the tests.
