If you can upload me complete reports as well as any previous record, I will be able to guide you better
It's always good to exercise regularly, I am glad to know that you are so health concerned and physically active

If it has increased from previous reports than its a matter of concern and you should get an ultrasound done

Dr Hudda, The sight which I can read my blood work report does not allow me to upload those reports. I can tell you that all other test were in the normal range with my total cholesterol reading being 147. Also my alt reading last year was in the mid 40's. Thanks for your response, XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for your reply

If you can't upload the reports, no issue.
Your cholesterol report is normal you need not to worry, as such ALT is also within normal range, since it has increased from previous report so I would advise you to get an ultrasound done whenever you go to the doctor.
Meanwhile Avoid alcohol or smoking if you are having it
You are already exercising so continue it
Have lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and dietary fibers in your diet
Have plenty of fluid intake.

Hope this will clear all your doubts pertaining to ALT report
