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.

My son woke up Saturday and his urine had blood in it, the color of koolaid, his gums were bleeding and he had blood spots and bruises allover his legs. He went to the Emergency Room and they took blood test. His platelets were at 3000 so they admitted him to I C U. The gave him 10 units of platelets and steroids, and it raised him to 12000 by that evening. They took ultra sound of his spleen and kidney and it looked ok. They tested him for HIV and Hepatitis C and he tested negative. They then on Sunday gave him 7 more units of platelets and more steroids. By Monday morning his platelet count was 3800. They wanted to send him home, but he refused , telling them he wanted to know what was wrong with him. They didn't do anything for him till 6 pm Monday night , they put him on more steroids and said they would check him in the morning. Should I get a second opinion and take him to another hospital?
