What liver doctors will not tell you: ALT is the key

What liver doctors will not tell you: ALT is the key
A:

Whether you have fatty liver, NASH, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, drug related liver damage, or alcohol liver disease, ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) level is the primary indicator of liver health. As long as your ALT level remains normal, liver health is ensured. Other liver function test results such as AST (Aspartate Aminotransferase / SGOT) are only secondary. 

 

This is because ALT is an enzyme that is mainly found in the liver. ALT enzymes are normally contained within the liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever reasons, the ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up.  Therefore, we can measure the concentration of ALT enzymes in the blood to determine the degree of liver damage.

 

On the other hand, although AST is a liver enzyme, it can also be found in other organ tissues such as the heart, muscle, kidney, and brain. Therefore, when compared with ALT, AST is less specific to liver injury. AST alone is not able to effectively reflect the health status of the liver, they are usually used in conjunction with ALT to detect liver injury.

 

Therefore, whether you have fatty liver or hepatitis, the main concern is not how much fat is in your liver or how high your viral load is. Instead, the KEY is to ensure your ALT level is kept within the normal range as normal ALT level indicates that the liver is healthy.

 

Having a small amount of ALT in the bloodstream is normal for healthy individuals. The normal values are around 10-40 units per litre. This range might vary according to different countries or laboratories, but the upper limit is usually between 35~45. A higher than normal level of ALT indicates the liver is damaged or inflamed, thus it is important to always maintain a normal ALT level.

NASH is inflammation in the liver developed from accumulated fat in the organ, also known as fatty liver. NASH damages liver cells and liver function, which results in elevated ALT liver enzyme level.    As there are no approved treatments for NASH, the standard recommendation for patients is to lose weight only.

In 2010, some 4.7 million people aged 65 years or older lived with Alzheimer's disease in the US.   Alzheimer’s is a common brain disease that causes progressive brain cell death that happens over a course of time. It will also cause a shrink in brain size as the tissue has progressively fewer nerve cells and connections. Alzheimer’s is thought to be caused by Protein Plaques building up in the brain cells, these Plaques are found between the dying cel

There are between 10 to 15 million patients in the U.S. with NASH, and among these patients, one-fifth to one-fourth are at risk for cirrhosis or chronic liver damage.   The major characteristic of NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. NASH can be severe and can lead to cirrhosis. The number of NASH cirrhosis patients is currently on the rise, and it is predicted (NAFLD & NASH) to be the number 1 cause of liver transplants by 2020.
