Answer

Without knowing your previous medical history, current signs and symptoms it is hard to say "what" the position of your liver is. The values that appear out of range are your AST and ALT, in functional medicine I like to see these between 10-30. Because they are not significantly elevated I would assume you are not in acute liver distress, but something is going on here. I don't know if there is a history of hepatitis that is being monitored, fatty liver, alcoholism ect. Without knowing YOU and your specific concerns related to these values it is hard to give more advice than this. I will also say that if this is a one time elevation it could mean little to nothing aside that your liver was working harder that day. Also because the AST is elevated more so than the ALT, your gall bladder and or bile duct could be the cause of elevation. Either way, I would lay off heavy foods for a while and stick to whole vegetables and lean proteins to give your liver a little break, as well as lots of water.

Hopefully this was of help to you.

Expertise

I can answer questions about routine lab work, functional lab ranges for optimal health, what lab tests should be considered and when you need to seek a second opinion. I can also answer questions about specialty testing like: stool testing, hormone testing, and saliva testing.

Experience

I run lab tests in my office as a functional medicine practitioner and use functional lab ranges looking for patient's optimal health not their disease. I review many charts and labs and look at trends through the years as well as current symptoms. Usually I find more things on labs that the traditional doctor that correlate to the patient's concerns/issues.
