High levels of AST and ASL, moderate drinker, gas and diarrhoea. Permanent damage to liver?

Hello, I am concerned with my recent blood test . My AST came back at 88 and ASL at 144. Both are over twice the normal range. I have been moderately drinking in the past 3 years. I am concerned that I have done some kind of permanent damage to my liver . I have also been experiencing a lot of gas and some mild diarhea and not sure if that is related. All of my other test results came back normal. I am a 40 year old femail. I am feeling very nervous and anxious that there is something seriously wrong and wanting to know if I have done any permanent damage and if it s possible to reduce the numbers and how? Thank you

Thanks for posting your query.
You should immediately stop drinking and consult with gastro-physician for liver care.
You should go for ultrasound imaging study of liver to know the status of liver damage.
You should take proper treatment so that your abnormal blood test again become normal.
