Yes. Damaged muscle tissue is partially metabolized by the liver and also some of those metabolites themselves can alter a liver test result.

As well, aminotransferase levels vary according to age and sex, so care must be taken to use age- and sex-appropriate reference limits.4,5 The clinical context of patient presentation is also important when interpreting reference limits. Levels of both aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) may increase with strenuous exercise,4,8 and hospital admission has been observed to induce a 5% increase in AST levels (0.4%–9.6%, 95% confidence interval [CI]) and a 17.5% increase in ALT levels (9.1%–21.6%, 95% CI) in healthy subjects;9 restricted physical activity and hospital diet have been suggested as possible explanations for these increases.
