Pain on the right side. Undergone tests. Increase in parenchymal echogenicity in liver. Suggestions?

I have been having pain on my right side so I visited a clinic in Abu Dhabi (UAE) - am working here - A CBC was done and an ultrasound. The spleen, pancreas, gallbladder, kidneys and bladder are all normal. The liver shows a mild increase parenchymal echogenicity. No focal solid or cystic lesion noted. The cbc found the ALT was 54.7 and 0-50 being normal. The AST was 29.7 and 0-40 is normal.
What do you think?

hi.. you have pain in the right hypochondrium.. mild raised liver enzymes and altered liver ecogenicity in the ultrasound examination.. could be viral hepatitis/early alcoholic liver disease..
get one HBsag and antibodies for Hepatitis A to rule out viral hepatitis...
if it is ruled out, alcohol if you are taking should be abstained.. take multivitamins and liver enzymes.. take fresh fruits and vegetables..
see your physician for getting liver protectives like silymarine..
all the very best..
