Hi

Thanks for asking.

Mild increase in the livet enzymes is a very common thing in clinical practice.

Most commmon causes of it are:

Viral hepatitis
Alcohol
Diabetes
Drugs
Acute illness
Stones in biliary tree.

As you do not take alcohol, I will advise you to redo the levels in 4-6 weeks as majority of them revert back to normal in this period.
If still high , will need more investigations.

Thanks.

Please let me know if you need more information.

For diabetic control HBA1C is used which tells about the control in the past 3 months.Any reading below 7 is considered good.

Single sugar checking in the morning does not tell the complete picture.
