So the latest liver test showed ALT=132 which is out of range, high. What does this mean? Is this very something to worry about or somewhat common? Thanks.

I don't have a copy of test, but think that high normal ALT is 65 or so.

Yes that is something to be worried about, your antibiotics are f*cking up your liver (assuming you are on them, if not then its probably a result of infection).

Your doctor will tell you what to do about it but it will likely involve 1) stopping the offending drugs and 2) taking NAC and milk thistle.

Yes, FODy. They are mildly elevated at the moment. I'd like to get them measured again. We've stepped up a couple of liver support supps. On the bright side, I'm now a very pleasent shade of yellow. Look like a lemon. (Just kidding...)

Thats nothing my liver test are in the 600 range. I was told by my LLMD to stop all antibiotics. I have been off antibiotics for over a month now and my liver tests continue to go up. My LLMD now recommends that I see a liver specialist.(Hepatologist)

I can't take liver support because they make me feel 10 times worse. I think my body just needs a break from everything. So for now I'm stopping EVERYTHING. I overloaded my system!!!
