2. High Liver Enzyme Symptoms

With mildly elevated liver enzyme levels, the symptoms in adults are minimal or nonexistent.2’Elevated Liver Enzymes.’ American Family Physician. 2011 Nov 1. www.aafp.org/afp/2011/1101/p1010.html If the underlying cause of enzyme release has its own set of symptoms, those may appear along with a higher enzyme presence in blood.

Adults and children may have symptoms from potential underlying causes, such as infection or nonalcoholic cirrhosis. The symptoms may include evidence of liver damage, such as yellowed skin and eyes, clay-colored stools, joint pain or swelling, and clotting problems.3’What are Elevated Liver Enzymes in Children?’ Nationwide Children’s Hospital. www.nationwidechildrens.org/conditions/elevated-liver-enzymes
