Yes, Hypo does elevate your ALT/AST. It did to me. If just 1 point, don't worry, you can wait. do another AST/ALT blood test in 2 or 3 months. Usually, ALT/AST level goes above 2 or 3 times of high normal range, then you need to worry. of course, test now won't hurt, the point is you may find out your problem may be caused by something else, not thyroid related. If you are taking any thyroid supplements, increase the dosage (if you can do that) may lower your AST/ALT.
I did have my sonogram, I guess everything is OK but now I have a really uncomfortable pain in my upper left side since then. The sonogram was really uncomfortable! Does anyone know what this could be?
Sonogram is a ultrasound. but I thought sonogram is used for baby image, are you preg ? well, You really don't need to worry if just 1 point. recheck in 3 months, if it goes up, you may want to do a full liver blood panel which will give you much more details about your liver. Your left side, don't know , may be from your sonogram, hope it goes away in a couple of days.
