What should a liver count for a 22 year old be? My counts are 169 & 144.
Response from Dr. McGovern
Every laboratory has different ranges for normal. However, I can still tell that your counts are very abnormal and I would pursue testing of hepatitis viruses. If that is unrevealing, I would pursue further evaluation of your liver health with a liver specialist (a hepatologist).
Also don't drink alcohol until it is clear what is going on.
