Brief Answer:
Following causes to slightly elevated ALT level...

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

I have gone through your lab reports and noticed only a slightly elevated ALT level; while your total protein is within normal (acceptable) range.

With regards to slightly elevated ALT level, it might be related to:
- being overweight/obese
- alcohol consumption
- any recent medication you might have been using
- viral infection

Hope it answered to your queries! Please provide the requested data for further evaluation!
