AST And ALT Blood Tests

AST And ALT Blood Tests

Has abyone ever been tested for ALT and AST? My bloodwork just came back with high AST but normal ALT.

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Those are liver enzymes. Mine were both high because my immune system was attacking my liver, but I didn’t have any pain or noticeable symptoms. I’ve been treated with meds for lupus for a little over a year now and they are now normal. They will probably test you for autoimmune hepatitis to be safe, but it could be “just” the lupus like mine. My liver doesn’t have permanent damage.

Do a google search on this. It means something to have one higher than the other but I forget what 😣 I researched this once and there is significance to it. Sorry I can’t be of more help
