AST high. Having lupus anticoagulant, Sjogreen's. Related?

Hello! I went to my Dr. las week for a physical. Everything was okay and my ALT was normal but my AST was 210. He said to wait 3 weeks and come back for an other test. I am 34 years old with Lupus anticohagulant and sjogreen s. Not sure if that has something to do and the fact that I had two glasses of wine the night before my physical. Thank you!

It could,
sometimes having a fatty meal the night before a test, could alter results.
so it is better to repeat the tests after a few days and preferably after an overnight fast.
