Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST)

Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme found in high concentrations in liver cells and heart and skeletal muscle cells.

Although elevated AST levels in the blood are not specific for liver disease, they are used primarily to diagnose and monitor the course of liver injury.

This test is done to monitor the effect of medication on your liver.
