abnormal liver tests
May 21, 2011

Would elevated ALT of 80+ for 6 months not count as abnormal liver function tests? I also have a ton of pain in the upper right portion of my abdominal area.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your ALT of 80 is abnormal. If you have right upper pain I would want you to get an ultrasound and other laboratory testing.
