Hi. Welcome To Healthcare Magic

Your elevated ALT(normal 8-20) is very mild. I suggest you repeat the test and confirm.

If still high and around 35, still it is mild elevation. But you can pursue the following tests: Hepatitis Panel(Rule out Hep B,C,); Ultrasound upper abdomen to see fatty liver and gallbladder problems (stones).

If the tests are normal and you can repeat the test after 6 months and if still high consult Gastroenterology and get the advanced tests done.

Regards, Dr. Jagdish
