Answer: Dear Salah,
Normal levels for AST are from
5 to 40 and for ALT from 7 to 56. High levels of AST and ALT enzymes
are, in some cases, indicators of liver damage (ie. Hepatitis).
Certain medications can also alter
the levels of ALT and AST enzymes such as:
- Aspirin, ibuprofen
- Anti-seizure medication
- Certain antibiotics
- Cholesterol lowering drugs
- Cardiovascular drugs
Elevated levels of liver enzymes
do not usually create any symptoms.
