I just had a blood work done. I have been engaging in some excessive drinking bouts, including the night before the test. My liver panel numbers are ALT 179, AST 112, ALP 78, total bilirubin 78, albumin 45, and total protein 77. My understanding is that ALT and AST are elevated, and the rest is good. Does the high ALT indicate cirrhosis? Or is it just one indicator of many drinks? My cholesterol is normal, and kidneys are good. Thanks.

Thank you for replying. I had these tests done because I had been drinking heavier than usual due to stress. It is going on for some time. The day before the tests I had consumed approximately 15 drinks in the day. Before that, I had consumed about five drinks daily. I have been vaccinated for hepatitis B, and I do not have any abdominal pain or other complaints. Other than AST and ALT, all other blood work came back normal. Hope this helps.
