It is released into the serum when any one of these tissues is damaged.For example, AST level in serum is elevated in heart attacks or with muscle injury.Moreover, the precise levels of these liver enzyme tests do not correlate well with the extent of liver problems or the prognosis (outlook).
ALT (SGPT) is, by contrast, normally found largely in the liver.
Consequently, if you have "...elevated liver enzymes" or a high or abnormal liver test, you need to ask your physician exactly what all of the tests indicate.
The blood tests that truly reflect liver function are the following; normal values (ranges) listed are for adult men - women and children have similar but slightly different ranges of normal test values Note that many hospitals and doctor's offices list a liver function panel as part of a lab workup.
These panels vary and may consist of AST, ALT and some or all of the tests listed above.
In addition, the normal panel values may vary somewhat, especially between adult men, women and children so viewing the "normal" ranges of test values is always recommended, and a thorough discussion with the physician is necessary.
Enzymes help to speed up (catalyze) routine and vital chemical reactions in the body.
