Is it possible for a liver function blood test to say liver inflammation if there really is no inflammation and enzymes are mildly elevated?

    Liver function tests don't test for inflammation. They test for liver function by measuring a bunch of different enzymes. If the readings are off, they could be interpreted as inflammation makers, but a liver function test can't directly determine inflammation.
