Wow ! normal ALT and AST ~ a first for me.

Since being diagnosed in 2005, my alt and ast have never both been in the normal range, not even after my transplant, when they got close.
So, here I am 7 weeks past EOT and my alt is 32, my ast is 27.
( This is the first lab I've done since EOT, was going to wait until 12 wks, but didn't )

At last, my liver is happy and healthy !
Wishing the same for everyone on the forum :)

I'd like to remind you that my levels didn't hit normal until after treatment.

At my 4 week lab during tx, my levels had dropped significantly to double digits from over 300 and 500.
Then they crept up a bit for the rest of tx.
Don't let the numbers make you fret while doing tx.

Thanks to all who talk of my obtaining SVR.
I too think the aliens are gone :)

That truly is amazing, OH.  I wonder why they didn't reach normal during your tx.  We are all different.  So it must have been totally unexpected getting those results.
