what is a bad liver count
Nov 12, 2007
What range is abnormal and when should you be concerned
Response from Dr. McGovern
ALT and AST vary from lab to lab so I cannot answer this question further.
ALT is a helpful marker when it is abnormal. However, people can have liver disease despite a normal ALT. It is limited in what it can tell us, except in extreme cases of acute hepatitis.
