The present study is the first of its kind in Libya and it was undertaken to estimate the changes in serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase and alkaline phosphatase levels in both pre-dialysis and haemodialysis chronic kidney disease patients in comparison to normal healthy control, and to find out the association between hepatic enzyme changes and eGFR, body weight loss, duration of disease and duration of haemodialysis in CKD patients.

The trial included 80 men and women with elevations of the liver enzymes alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and ultrasonography diagnosed NAFLD who received 500 mg of green tea extract or a placebo for 90 days.

Other measures included blood pressure, weight, BMI, and blood levels of magnesium and CV-related factors (e.g., cholesterol, triglycerides, plasma glucose, insulin, apolipoproteins A and B, creatinine, uric acid, aspartate aminotransferase [AST], alanine aminotransferase [ALT], and C-reactive protein).
In chicks, transaminases are sensitive and specific indicators for vitamin [B.sub.6] status and vitamin [B.sub.6] deficiency significantly reduces the activities of aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase in blood (Cheney et al., 1965; Yen et al., 1976; Oloyo, 2001), but its indicator status has not been reported in ducks.
