Sometimes viral flu
can also result in an elevation of the AST & ALT
. The hepatitis
viral markers were already negative as you have conveyed. I suggest you get the Liver function tests repeated 3-4 weeks after the flu has resolved. if the AST & ALT are still elevated at that point of time I recommend doing a lipid profile
, iron and copper studies and then if indicated after seeing the above reports a liver biopsy
may be indicated.
Hope I have answered your query you get well soon. I will be available in case of any further queries.
