    Default Concerns with liver function in early pregnancy

    Has anyone else had very high results for bili.total, ggt, ast, and alt in early pregnancy? I had a liver function test about 5 months ago and it was fine. So am very concerned. My dr was concerned, but blew it off as it must be because im pregnant? Dr Google is not being kind lol! Would love to know if anyone else has had this issue?

    I didn't have it myself but had regular testing because I have a liver condition. There are a number of pregnancy related liver conditions so I would definitely be keeping an eye on it. Have you spoken to an OB about it or was it the GP?

    I had high results in my first pregnancy, during the 2nd trimester though. They were about 4 times what they should have been. Had further blood tests a few weeks and the results were even worse. In the third lot of blood tests, they were suddenly back within normal range. The doctors had no explanation, just 'one of those pregnancy things'.

    I would talk to your obstetrician/midwife. It is quite normal however to have elevated cholesterol levels in your pregnancy, so the AST and ALT. but talk to your doctors

    I had unexplained elevated liver tests 2-3x normal in second trimester that resolved eventually but was monitored.

    Glad to know some other people have experienced this. It was through my local gp. Not my regular dr though. Will make sure i query in more detail and maybe get repeat bloods when I see him in a couple of weeks.
