I have a problem with gh ALT, other liver enzymes are

Resolved Question:

I have a problem with high ALT, other liver enzymes are normal. ALT was normal too before I started taking Agomelatine for major depression. I stopped taking the medication six months ago and ALT is continuing to creep up. I was referred for a liver ultrasound and everything looked completely normal.

Hello

If the other enzymes are normal, this is not very meaningful.

If it is just over high normal, then probably not meaningful at all.

My only suggestion would be to make sure you have had.

Hepatitis B and C screens.

ANA

Iron studies and ferritin.
