low liver enzymes
I recently had blood work done and my Np said my liver enzymes were unusually low. She said it could be consistant with liver failure or malnourishment. What steps should I take to better this conditions? How does it happen? How serious is it? I'm very young, I'm not a frequent drinker, and don't use drugs. What outcomes do I face?

The best advise I could give you would be to see a specialist with the liver because I don't know about low enzymes.

I would like to know specifically which enzymes are low and exactly what the numbers are.
I cannot recall hearing about low liver enzymes in a negative context. Everything I have read suggests low liver enzymes are a good thing. I suppose malnutrition could result in low enzymes but I would think you'd know if you are malnourished and certainly your NP should be able to ascertain the state of your nourishment. It just sounds odd to me.
Good luck,
Mike
