That is a normal value

Why are you concerned?

I thought it was high. The information I received says the range for females is 20-33 and I am on the high end.

I don't have $50 to call you. I just wanted an answer. Do liver supplements work?

I did not suggest a phone call, that is site automation.

In fact, I don't even do phone calls.

If your value is 28 it is in the normal range.

No, liver supplements can help protect the liver, but they do not correct existing damage.

If you had a liver problem you would need a diagnosis to manage it, with a doctor.

However, your result is normal at 28, not high.

So there is no concern.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
