My recent ALT is 90 and AST is 86. I used cocaine two days before the blood test. Can it cause an elevation in LFTs? If so, how long of an abstinence period would be needed to get LFTs back down to normal levels?

My alcohol consumption is very low. I do not even drink more than 2-3 times a week and I do drink mostly beer. I do not take any medication such as pain killers, antibiotics or herbals. I have been using cocaine for over 6 years at least once a month. My LFTs have been gradually increasing over the past two years. When last time after two days of using cocaine my LFTs increased about 20-25 points. This recent increase is why I am researching the existence of a link between cocaine usage and possible liver damage.
