My ALT has been bouncing around in the normal range (7-56) over the past few months. In November, it was 24 and in January, it was 55. Doctor said it's within normal limits and not to worry at all. Both my GP and my GI/Hep doctor said this. I have fatty liver and just found out that it has gone from moderate to severe, to mild over the past 10 months. I have been working really hard at this! Should I be concerned about the elevations? What kinds of things can cause ALT fluctuations? I ate and exercised horribly over November and December and gained about 8 pounds. That's what my GI thinks is the issue. My GP said that ALT just fluctuates sometimes. Does anyone know of any natural remedies that can help lower ALT? Also, does anyone know how to come off statins without your cholesterol coming back up? What types of things would I do? I know I could always go back on the statin if my cholesterol started going back up. My main problem was that my triglycerides were high, my good was bad and my bad was bad. Overall, my number was 289. I have since lost 60 pounds and eat a totally different diet now. I have a liver condition (fatty liver) and possibly NASH and would like to take as much stress off of my liver as possible. I take some other medications for anxiety disorder, panic attacks and depression that I will never be able to get off of. They appear to be pretty safe. It's the statin that I'd like to work on. What do you all think? Has anyone ever done this successfully?
