Objectives: To assess the association of raised serum liver enzyme (ALT) with type 2 diabetic subjects.
The discovery targets a liver enzyme, called CYP2A6, which metabolizes nicotine.
Few dermatologists do any testing when dosage is changed--a lipid panel and liver enzymes being the most popular response at 10%--or when therapy is completed--a lipid panel (8%) and liver enzyme check (8%) were the most common.
Levels of the liver enzyme ALT were tested in 635 mother and child pairs in Massachusetts.

Long term and high doses of prednisone and methylprednisolone (500 mg) [13] have been associated with NASH exacerbations, with liver enzyme elevations, and with liver histology showing hepatitis with steatosis, chronic inflammation, and Mallory bodies, which were not consistent with liver biopsy in this patient [11].

A possible role for cell-mediated mechanotransduction in liver enzyme release was suggested by increasing flow-induced shear stress, which is largely controlled through modifications in cell calcium mobilization and production of liver NO [21].
Further, it has been reported that the severity of liver injury does not correlate with the level of liver enzyme elevation [16].
