10. Increased Liver Enzymes

Active liver damage will show increased liver enzymes in the blood. These may not appear in all people with chronic liver conditions. Increased liver enzymes are a result of acute damage and can indicate that the organ is under attack from toxins, inflammation, viruses, or other causes. If elevated liver enzymes are present, doctors may investigate to determine the cause and prevent further damage.
