Detailed Answer:
Hello XXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

No,you shouldn't worry at all.
Latest report suggests elevated AST.It is non specific finding and it is increased in many conditions.
ALT is specific for liver and it is within normal limit.

However it is important to know your clinical status and reason for investigations.
Please let me know your symptoms.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.
