Liver Enzymes (hepatic vs cholestatic patterns)

 

Liver enzymes can be elevated for a number of reasons, but the first step in an approach is to determine if the enzymes are in a hepatic pattern or cholestatic pattern. It is also very important to realize that Alk phos, GGT, ALP, and AST are liver enzymes, but they don’t give an indication of function; for that you need to look at INR and bilirubin.
