Brief Answer:
Could be due to autoimmune hepatitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The reports suggest that the liver enzymes are raised. It could be due to acute liver injury as an effect of alcohol. It could also be due to autoimmune hepatitis wherein the viral markers would be negative. You need not worry about hepatitis C.

Let me know if I could help further.
