I posted on the Over 35 Forum, but wanted to touch base here for more input. Having higher liver values after starting a ton of new supplements, looking for help on possibly identifying which ones might be raising my liver values?? Never had this issue before, even on prohormones!
Been on HRT and a really aggresive supplement protocol to get me through some serious medical issues…good news since starting HRT and all these supplements, my life has totally done a 180 and I am back on the road to being “normal” with a good quality of life. Getting labs done every 3 months, and nothing drastic but my AST and ALT levels came out high. Wondering if anyone sees anything on my supplement or HRT list that could be causing this?
AST 52 IU/L, reference range 0-40
ALT 76 IU/L, reference range 0-55
