Suggest treatment for elevated AST and ALT levels?

Hi Dr. Narasi,

reason why I am contacting you is because my ast and alt are elevated. AST 218 and ALT was 159. Also RDW was 15.8. I am hep c, hep B and HIV negative and I have not taken any over the counter drugs that would raise my levels. I have been on a high protein diet and exercising with heavy weights. Oh and a bout a month ago my levels were in the 100s as well. But two months ago levels were within normal range.

Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM.

Mostly rise in ALT/AST levels are due to Viral hepatitis , Alcohol intake.

I would advise you following :
1. LFT - Complete
2. Hemogram
3. USG Abdomen
4. Anti- HAV Antibody and Anti HEV Antibody
