Following a few blood tests over the last few months, my GP is still saying i have raised ALT levels (58 i think it was at last count, 52 before that)

He keeps asking if i drink (which i dont) and saying that without any other raised enzymes theres nothing to worry about but is still sending me for an ultrasound.

Is there anything else it could be? The next bloods are testing for all sorts, hepatitis, Coeliac amongst them.

Ive also noticed that instead of actually having a large tummy/middle, that my bulk is mainly just below my ribs, causing me to look pregnant. This part can also feel slightly bruised at times.

Thanks for the answer, ultrasound in 2 weeks and then seeing GP again next month
Yeah!,AB same old , same old as you say......

Let me know the result of the ultrasound.

With all other LFT's being normal, and the 50's are no big deal, then i shouldn't worry.
