First real post to this excellent community. Been lurking a while.
Had some different liver function numbers at my last blood test:
SGOT/AST: 82 (ref 15 - 41)
SGPT/ALT: 45 (ref 0 - 44)
I am 40 y/o. Very fit, active, not obese. No history of diabetes, hepatitis, etc. I usually eat paleo with light to moderate carbs. I was quite strict three weeks before the test.
I do drink and often a lot on weekends. I did not drink three weeks prior to this test.
I had also been lifting weights and running a lot before the blood test.
The obvious answer here is that I've drank myself to a fatty liver. Could it be anything else? Thoughts?

those are within the standard variables so I would not fret......you could take NAC curcumin and resveratrol for several weeks and watch them fall. If you drink heavy those days you should take NAC 1800 mgs to help you liver detox the booze as it support glutathione conversion. But you likely need to up the B vitamins at the same time to make the reaction work.I would also tell you not to drink heavy if your ketotic because this can elevate liver enzymes too.......maybe consider upping your carbs during your drinking on day you pound the sauce.....when your ketotic alcohol will have a more rapid onset and make you feel bombed faster.
