welcome to HealthcareMagic
The AST of 41 is on slightly higher side and it may be either due to fatty liver or may be due to your drinking.Whether you drink more or less than others is not important but the reaction of every person differs and so does the tolerance.So you will have to probably stop drinking.Remember the saying one mans meat is other mans poison.So if your body is not tolerating well you will have to stop drinking.
