My AST (209) & ALT (119) are high but my GGT is normal (45). What's the deal?
My cholesterol is 228, HDL 36 (cholesterol ratio=6.2%, flagged as High), LDL 137, triglycerides 269 (flagged as High), everything else is within the normal ranges. I am male, 42, 5'10", 187#, and before this, thought I was in good health. I am about 15lbs over my ideal weight and am working on losing those lbs. I am in good shape, exercise regularly. I drink a beer or glass of wine now and then; take acetominephen or tylenol occasionally. I am not on any meds. I eat healthy: fresh veggie juices and salads everyday, stay away from junk food. What's up with my high AST & ALT?

Hi there. I know it's really difficult to lose weight. I've been in the same situation myself. I recommend you take 2 glasses of warm water n the morning upon waking up. I've been doing it and it's making wonders in my campaign. Also, I've tried the diet solution program course and I successfully lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks. You may want to try it out too.Good luck.God bless.
You did not state why you had the blood tests performed. Weight loss is associated with increases in gall stones, which can be associated with increases in liver function tests.Transaminases (AST and ALT) can be elevated from a number of reasons, even following a cold. Generally I do not bother with these unless they are >3X higher than the upper limit of normal. In your case, the AST would need watching. I suggest repeating these to see if it has come down on its own.
