    Your liver enzymes are up. Something is affecting your liver. There are alot of reasons that liver enzymes can be elevated. Some of those can be alcohol abuse, drug use, malignancies, viral disorders and several other reasons.

    ALT and AST do NOT relate to blood sugar. It is an indication of liver function and could mean many things. Are you taking any medications? Do you drink alcohol? Are you at risk for having contracted hepatitis? Just a few ideas.

    It's liver enzymes - ur levels are slightly high - it can be from drinking alcohol , taking tylenol or hepititis - they probably want to re check it in a couple of weeks after telling u to drink no alcohol and not taking any tylenol to see if they go back down - hope this helps :)

    These are elevated liver enzymes. It could be an illness. If you drink, it could indicate damage to your liver. There are many, many causes of elevated enzymes. Ask your doctor these questions and what you can do to get them lower.

    they are related to both the liver-ALT and AST and the heart AST. both are enzymes.surely your doctor has something in his/her mind.better to ask him his clinical findings and asked why he/she requested the test. if its lever related surely additional test like Liver Profile like A/G ratio, DBIB, BUN, Crea, GGT etc for cardiac problems CK, CKMB troponin I, T etc.

    ask your MD regarding your clinical history and what he is trying to diagnose to get a better picture why this test has been requested
