Liver function tests – what do they mean?

Liver Function Tests

A blood test for your liver checks the following:
•    The function of the liver, which will show if the liver is manufacturing enough protein for the body to function normally
•    The amount of bile pigment in the blood – this can be elevated if there is a blockage in the bile ducts or if there is a deficiency of a liver enzyme that processes bile; bile pigment is known as bilirubin
•    The level of your liver enzymes – if these are elevated this means that your liver cells are inflamed or slightly damaged which can be from various causes.

Your blood test for liver function will be processed by an automated multi-channel analyzer and is extremely accurate; it will check the blood levels of the following:

Liver Enzymes

AST – (aspartate aminotransferase), which was previously called SGOT. This enzyme can also be elevated in heart and muscular diseases and is not liver specific.
Normal range of AST is 5-45 U/L.
ALT – (alanine aminotransferase), which was previously called SGPT and is more specific for liver damage.
Normal range of ALT is 5-45 U/L.
AP – (alkaline phosphatase) is elevated in many types of liver disease but also in non-liver related diseases.
Normal range of AP is 30-120 U/L.
GT – (gamma glutamyl transpeptidase) is liver specific. GT is often elevated in those who use alcohol or other liver toxic substances to excess.
Normal range of GT is 5- 35 U/L.

Question:
Why do all or some of these enzymes become elevated in cases of liver dysfunction or disease?

Answer:  Normally the liver enzymes are contained inside the liver cells (hepatocytes) where they perform their metabolic functions for the cells. These enzymes only leak into the blood stream when the liver cells are damaged. The higher the liver enzymes are above the normal range, the greater the degree of liver inflammation will be. When we repair the liver cells, the liver enzyme blood levels come back into the normal range.
Thankfully of all the organs in the body, the liver is most able to repair and regenerate itself.

Total Bilirubin
Normal range is 3 – 18 umol/L (0.174 – 1.04mg/dL)
The most common cause of slightly elevated bilirubin is an inherited enzyme deficiency called Gilbert’s Syndrome and this is not a serious problem.

Blood Proteins
These are manufactured by the liver and include such proteins as albumin and globulins.
Total protein
Normal range is 60-80 g/L (6 – 8g/dL).
Serum albumin
Normal range of albumin is 30-50 g/L (3 -5 g/dL).
Serum albumin is a good guide to the severity of chronic liver disease. A healthy liver manufactures the protein albumin, and falling levels show deteriorating liver function. Gamma globulin protein levels may be abnormal in chronic liver disease. Elevated levels of gamma globulin proteins indicate that your immune system and liver are fighting something – such as a chronic infection, chronic inflammation or a hidden cancer.

Your results
Liver function tests may be normal in cases of mild liver dysfunction or disease; in other words, if you feel unwell or have many of the symptoms of liver disease, it is still a good idea to see your doctor for other tests, including an ultrasound scan of your liver.

If your liver function tests show elevated liver enzymes, we suggest that you improve your diet and lifestyle and take a powerful liver tonic and have this test repeated in 3 months time.

The most common causes of elevated liver enzymes are:
•    Fatty liver which is due to poor diet = consumption of excess dietary carbohydrates, lack of raw vegetables and fruits and lack of first class protein.
•    Liver inflammation due to excess alcohol
•    Liver inflammation due to recreational drug use
•    Liver inflammation due to adverse reactions to prescription drugs
•    Infection with hepatitis C or B viruses
•    Build up of excess iron in the liver

  19. Hi,

    My wife is 17 weeks pregnant and was doing well. Recently her Gynae has suggested her to take Iron tabs (100mg Elemental iron). Whenever she took this Iron tablet she had nausea, stomach cramp & vomiting with 1-2 hours. She visited the gynecologist yesterday, who advised her to go for Liver Function Test wherein it is reported that AST-123, ALT-140 & ALP-127 and are above normal levels while Albumin is at 3.

    She was checked for Hepatitis – B & C, which were negative 2 weeks ago, and her hemoglobin level was 11.9 while the Platelets was at 90,000. Will appreciate your input on this. Thanks

    • Hi Raj,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      If your wife had no pre-existing liver concerns it is important to have an abdominal ultrasound as she may have acute fatty liver of pregnancy or intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy.

      It is very important to reduce your wife’s inflammation and we recommend she have fresh vegetable juices daily 1 cup daily.

      Remove all gluten, dairy, legumes and processed foods from her diet and replace with lots of vegetables, moderate portions of protein foods and some good fats like avocadoes, extra virgin olive oil, hemp seeds and hemp seed oil, fish oil and oily fish.

      To naturally increase iron, she may eat some red meat, liver from organically raised animals, molasses, seaweeds or pumpkin seeds. Always have these foods with vitamin C. Do not drink tea or coffee an hour before or after having iron containing foods.

      To reduce inflammation and improve gut health, Dr Cabot recommends your wife begins taking

      Glutamine Powder – 1 teaspoon in water twice daily to calm, soothe, and heal your gut lining and resolve Leaky Gut in conjunction with an anti-inflammatory diet.

      Floratone – 1 capsule after the main meal of the day.

      Selenomune Designer Energy – 1 capsule daily.

      Let us know how you get on.

      • Hi Raj,

        If your wife’s symptoms do not improve please consult your Medical Practitioner as she may need an appointment with an hepatologist.

  21. I’ve had achy joints, extreme fatigue and headaches. My ALT is 49, normally 14 or 19. My AST is 27, normally 16 or 15 on past tests. Not on medications, no known medical issues. Is it normal for these to elevate that much?

    • Also was tested Hep B and C in December and they were neg.

    • Hi Janna,

      Your AST is normal, but your ALT is slightly elevated. This may indicate mild liver inflammation.
      This may be caused by environmental toxins or having too many carbohydrates from pasta, bread, cereals, cookies, etc.
      The symptoms you are experiencing are all symptoms of inflammation.

      We recommend you eliminate grains, sugar, processed food and takeout meals from your diet.
      There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.

    • Hi Tarannum,

      This indicates liver inflammation, but doesn’t necessarily mean you need to get your gallbladder removed.
      We recommend you get a HIDA scan of your gallbladder.
      It is very likely you can save your gallbladder with natural alternatives if it is not causing you pain and there are not multiple gallstones.
      We also recommend you eliminate grains, sugar, dairy and processed food from your diet.
      There is an excellent diet to follow in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally’.
      In the meantime Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function and improve bile flow which will also help the gallbladder.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.

    • Hi Locus,

      These results are an indication of Fatty Liver, and an abdominal ultrasound will confirm this.

      Fatty liver can be reversed with the correct diet and supplements that support liver function and repair liver cells.
      Dr Cabot’s book ‘Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It’ provides a complete eating plan with recipes.
      Eat less carbohydrate – including sugar, grains and other starchy foods, because the liver converts any excess carbohydrate into fat. Don’t drink too much alcohol.
      Eat more vegetables, protein and healthy fats.
      Drink raw vegetable juices 250 to 300mls 2 to 3 times a week. Dr Cabot’s book ‘Raw Juices can save your life’ has recipes for many different health conditions. Try the ‘Liver Cleanse’ or ‘Liver Tonic’ juices in the book.
      Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking
      LivaTone Plus – 2 capsules twice a day to help repair damage to the liver and improve the liver’s ability to metabolise fat.
      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing. This supplement is the precursor nutrient of glutathione; the body’s strongest anti-oxidant.

      MSM + Vitamin C – ½ to 1 teaspoon twice daily in vegetable juice or water to reduce oxidation, inflammation and boost liver health.

      Fatty liver is never to be ignored, as it may lead to cirrhosis.

    • Hi Naveen,

      Dr Cabot says that the white blood cell count is elevated, we suggest you see your doctor to check for an infection in your body.

  50. After couple of years of symptoms, I was diagnosed with Liver Flukes (Fasciola Hepatica). They were treated (twice) through a single dose of Egaten (both the times). Fasciola Hepatica then came negative in the Blood Counts for couple of years post that. Although I did have a Eosinophilia (and connected symptoms/issues) for an year in between, but no one could find the root cause (Liver Flukes were negative in Blood reports).
    Now we weeks back I suddenly got high fever with chills, post my blood tests, they found elevated SGOT 52, SGPT 81, CRP 9 (rest counts in LFT were normal). Fasciola Hepatica counts came to be 1/320 (IHA).
    I am now a bit stressed and confused, Doctors are off/taking time to get back to me. I am just concerned that any delay in treating the issues should not harm my Liver, especially since I have this for years now.
    Can you advise with your understanding of the potential issues, risks and proposed next steps?

    • Hi Berry,

      Egaten (also known as triclabendazole) is the best drug for liver fluke infection. To be careful, Dr Cabot recommends another course of Egaten for you to be taken as soon as possible.

  53. Hi!
    An ayurveda doctor says to my sis that she is suffering from white jaundice then we have done a lft test in that everything is normal but still the ayurveda Dr. Is saying that in lft the white jaundice will not detect inspite of lft is normal the Dr. Is saying that my sister is suffering from white jaundice is that correct plz reply me fast

    • Hi Ismail,

      White jaundice is the old name for jaundice and this is usually shown by an increase in the bilirubin test of the Liver Function Tests.

      Your sister went to see the Ayurveda doctor because she is not well and even if the name of the condition does not fit with western medicine tests, the treatment may still be effective.

      Dr Cabot recommends she begins taking

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing.

  54. Mine everything is normal only sgpt (alt) is 57. Do i need to be really worried?

    • Dear Hamzah,

      Try not to worry. Livatone Plus helps to lower liver enzymes. You should take 1 cap twice daily for 2 weeks and then increase to 2 caps twice daily.
      These can be purchased from http://www.liverdocotor.com.

    • Hi Mukesh,

      The best thing to do would be to show these results to your healthcare practitioner and see what they have to say.

        • Hi Bilal,

          Your ALT and GGT are elevated which indicates fatty liver. This is likely caused by excess alcohol or other liver toxic substances.
          Fatty liver means you’re liver cells are infiltrated with fat and as a result it is not working as efficiently as it should be.
          We recommend you avoid grains, sugar, alcohol and processed foods.
          Fatty liver can also be caused by long-term use of medications.
          There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s free e-book on fatty liver.
          Dr Cabot recommends you take
          Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
          N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. NAC is the precursor to glutathione; the body’s most potent antioxidant. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.
          These supplements are available here: https://shop.liverdoctor.com/
          Let us know how you get on.
