Hey, I went to the doctor about constant fatigue and he ordered a full blood test. Results show very low Vitamin D (33.3mol/L) and high Vitamin B12 (856ng/L). So he's given me Vitamin D supplements to take.
Liver function tests also showed up the following:
High GGT - 89 iu/L (normal range is 2-50)
High ALT - 66 iu/L (normal range 0-40)
Normal AST - 37 iu/L
Normal ALP - 36 iu/L
Normal Albumin - 41g/L
Normal Bilirubin - 12 umol/L
He's now ordered blood tests to check for Hepatitis, and a liver ultrasound, but says he doesn't know enough to even speculate yet.
Laboratory test results need to be assessed keeping in mind the complete clinical status of a patient.
In some cases though lab findings may be slightly varying from the reference range, as long as the patient is asymptomatic there is no need for any specific treatment.
If the only issue you had was very mild elevated levels of liver enzymes but no symptoms or no findings on radiological tests like Ultrasound, then the findings would be non-specific and there is nothing to worry about.
