Question: What are the implications of an atl of 138? Lesley

Answer: Dear Lesley,

Normal levels for ALT are from 7 to 56. High levels of ALT enzymes are, in some cases, indicators of liver damage (ie. Hepatitis).

Certain medications can also alter the levels of ALT enzymes such as:

- Aspirin, ibuprofen
- Anti-seizure medication
- Certain antibiotics
- Cholesterol lowering drugs
- Anti-depressants
- Cardiovascular drugs
