Hi, I had some blood tests done and the " liver profile"  results were all very high: lactate dehydrogenase = 1186, alkaline phosphatase = 183, sgot (ast) = 187, sgpt (alt) = 310, gamma glutamyln trans. (ggt) = 146. according to the normal ranges these are very high! I do not drink or smoke, can I have some advise?

Dear PJS
This could be an indication of underlying liver cell disease ( like chronic hepatitis) Your doctor may need to do more tests to determine the cause - this may include a liver sonar and some blood tests
