ALT issue
Oct 25, 2008

Just stop interferon and my DNA <6 IU/L, ALT goes up to 500. My latest ALT now is 244. What seems to be happening inside the liver? Can I achieve a normal ALT?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You will need careful follow up to determine if the virus has recurred. If not, there could be other causes of your elevated ALT such as medications or obesity (which can cause fatty liver).
