Dear Pradeep,
The level of Bilirubin and enzymes do indicate that there is some form of inflammation
in the liver. It is possible that someone can have Hepatitis due to viral causes and not
have severe symptoms and when it begins to heal you may still show some changes
in the blood tests. However , other things that could affect the liver include alcohol,
even some prescription medications (Even over the counter ), Gallbladder problems etc.
Sonogram will show if you have stones in the gallbladder.
You do need complete screening for Hepatitis A & B.
It does not appear to be serious.
Good luck.
