I just had blood lab done, my Liver ALT came back elevated (95), what would cause this, all other lab was fine, thanks

Your ALT is a measure of liver activity and may reflect alcohol use, medication use (including herbs, over the counter drugs), or chronic viral hepatitis with B or C or some other liver disease. I would not be concerned necessarily with only one test. I would follow this up with additional ALT and start evaluation for causes of liver disease.\ Dr. McGovern
