Brief Answer: Please upload your test reports... Detailed Answer: Hi my dear, Before running into conclusions, I'd gently ask to have the results of your blood test! That could help me assist you further! Normally, during pregnancy, AST and ALT might be increased. In addition, your being obese would increase the chances for high AST and ALT. Gallbladder sludge or stones are also commonly occurring during pregnancy. At this point, I highly suggest to do further tests including: - abdominal ultrasound - HbsAg - anti-HCV - alkaline phosphatase - measuring bilirubin - diabetes tests (fasting, HbA1C, oral-glucose tolerance test) to further evaluate your health condition to decide for further treatment. Looking forward to have the reports of your tests! Thank you Dr.Klerida
