The Asymptomatic Patient with Elevated Liver Enzymes
It is important to understand basic liver related laboratory tests in order to determine the possible etiologies for abnormal levels and to develop a course of action. Many liver tests are not specific only to the liver but can be abnormal from primary non-hepatic disease as well. Evaluation of liver biochemical tests must be interpreted in light of the history, medications and clinical findings.
