Welcome to healthcare magic.
Thank you for your query.

AST & ALT is usually elevated due to liver function impairment.
Obesity is one of the cause.
I think you are obese enough.

Control & maintain balanced diet.
Regular exercise will help you to decrease weight.

Some pathological cause should be considered also.
Thyroid disorder & cushing sydrome may cause rapid weight gain.

If there are associated features of liver disease like jaundice, ankle & abdominal swelling etc then you have to check other parameter.
Cause should be identified.

Consult an internal medicine specialist.

I hope I have been some help of your query.
Please write if you have any doubt.
Take care
