About Alanine aminotransferase
What is alanine aminotransferase?
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme found in muscle tissue, intestines and is particularly abundant in the liver. It is involved in processing nitrogen waste material from muscle tissue, which eventually ends up in urea. As ALT levels are typically only high in the liver, elevated levels in the blood are usually associated with liver damage.
Diseases associated with abnormal ALT levels include liver damage, hepatitis, diabetes, infectious mononucleosis, myopathy and heart failure.
Why take the test?
This test measures the level of ALT in the blood and is typically used to diagnose and monitor liver damage.
