Doctor ran an enzyme test before putting me on some meds, just to make sure my liver was healthy enough to handle it. One of the scores came up just a little high (6 points), but they didn't tell me which one. So they had me come back in two weeks to test again. Still high. Did an ultrasound on my liver and nothing negative showed up.
I've been doing some research on my own, and found that 'excessive' heavy lifting could contribute to high liver enzyme scores. I'm not in any other risk groups, and I lift five days a week. Could this be an indicator that I'm out-working my recovery capacity? I haven't been making very good progress lately, despite throwing more volume in for the past few months.
I've already decreased my workload back to three lifts per muscle group for 3x5 or 3x8. Just wondering if anybody had any thoughts or experience on this.
