ALT count abnormal. Can that affect digestion? Why is stool loose and brown?

My (SPGT) ALT count is 90 . Having problem with digestion over an year . It is brownish but soft/ loose . I have to go to the toilet 4+ times each day . I fear to have HCV + . Though i never had a blood transfusion or illegal sex but I went to the barber and had a face wash I had acne on my cheek and after that the barber rubbed my face with a wet towel piece which he uses with other customers though he washes that with soap (he claims) can HCV come this way ? What will I do now ?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

First of all do not worry. HCV transmission occurs basically with blood transfusions, needle pricks, sexual route etc. To get rid of your anxiety please get a blood test for HCV.

If your SGPT continues to remain high a detailed examination and investigations are required to arrive at the cause of that.
Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
