Elevated Liver Enzymes

Elevated Liver Enzymes: Know the Facts

About

Elevated Liver Enzymes refers to the inflammation of the liver cells, often signalling a mild and temporary rise in the levels of liver enzymes.

It is estimated that around 1-9% of people who earlier didn’t show any symptoms were found to have high liver enzyme levels. [1]

- The liver, one of the most important internal organs, produces proteins, enzymes, and substances responsible for blood clotting. The enzymes produced in the liver are ALT, AST, CGT, and ALP.
- Some liver enzyme tests or blood tests are required to confirm the levels of liver enzymes.
Elevated Liver Enzymes often result due to prolonged

- Liver Cirrhosis
- Hepatitis (A, B, C)
- Fatty Liver Disease
- Alcohol Consumption
- Some OTC pain and cardiovascular medications

Symptoms

Although Elevated Liver Enzymes have no symptoms of their own, the doctor can look for common symptoms, which include:
- Pain/swelling in abdomen and legs
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea
- Vomiting
- Discolored bodily discharges (dark urine)
- Shortness of breath
- Fatigue and weakness
- Jaundice (Yellowing of skin and eyes)

Upon ordering for liver function tests like ALT and AST tests, doctors look for patients who are obese, have a family history of liver disease and diabetes, or consume drugs/ alcohol.
