    • Layne, I used the search function but can't find this exact topic addressed, so here goes. (I also started a thread in this section with the below text.)

      I've seen lots of discussion on the effects of anabolics on liver enzyme readings. Dave even addressed this (at least once) in his Q&A. But can natties who do NOT use any "supplements" have slightly or moderately high liver enzyme readings due solely to heavy weight training?

      All liver enzymes are normal except:
      AST 181 (should be < 30)
      ALT 79 (should also be < 30)

      I do NOT have hepatitis and have never had a heart attack or anything close. EKG (ECG) and all other tests come out excellent. I do have hypertension which we are beginning to treat.

      I've been referred to a "research team" at a local hospital, and they'll apparently run a whack of tests, but could this be caused by serious lifting? I have a feeling that this is something I'll have to take an active role in managing, because once the tests start and the theories emerge, I could turn into a veritable guinea pig for this "team", which almost certainly will not include serious lifters familiar with the effects of weight training on the body.

      My apologies if this has been covered a dozen times, but I can't find any threads that address my specific situation, i.e. nattie lifter, no supps, not a radically high protein intake...

      BTW got married myself in October... quite the experience! Congrats to you and yours.

      • yes, actually anyone who lifts weights or has a high protein diet will likely have elevated liver enzymes simply from increased turnover. It is nothing to worry about in my opinion, but if you are concerned there are more specific tests your doctor can run.

            Thanks for your prompt and helpful reply, Layne. Could you point to any articles or studies that I can bring with me to the doctor's? I've found in the past that things can get a bit out of hand--they love the challenge of solving problems, and this can take time. Time that I don't have.

                  cool show, you sounded very professional, good interview...little surprised at how openly racist the comment from one of the hosts about the race of the bankrobber in the segment previous to yours was lol

                  "so was this bank robber white, or.....you know"
                  "no he was a white guy"
                  "what? you're lying"

                    • you have to remember that you only see what the cameras want you to see... if they want to make someone look like a bad guy... they usually can. Nick and I aren't what I would consider good friends, but we have no problems with each other.

                        What do you think of Accelerade? Is there any scientific support for its claim that the 4:1 Carb to Protein ratio is optimal for post-workout recovery?

                        • Layne, how is your Phd progress coming along? Are you absolutely flooded with homework and labwork 24/7?

                            somewhat, but their drink only has 9g pro & 36g carbs; wheras the studies used 25g pro & 100g carbs so the ratio is right but the #s aren't

                                Bit of a dumb question...but what exactly DOES go into a PhD?!

                                Well, your one anyway? I've been meaning to ask that question for a while but was trying to keep any Q's training/nutrition related.
