Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.
I went through your lab report.
The liver enzymes are elevated more than two times the upper limit of normal which is significant.
This could occur due to infections, certain medications and fatty liver.
I would suggest that the liver function test be repeated and if it is persistently elevated, then further tests may be done to find the cause.

I hope that answers your question.

Dr.Ratnakar Kini
