Hi.
Thanks for posting query at HCM.

NO need to worry.
retest liver enzymes after 3 to 6 months.

Usually ALT or AST values higher than "two times the upper normal limit", is considered abnormal ( in some countries, ALT or AST values of more than 100 are considered abnormal).

Value of AST or ALT greater than 85 or above maybe investigated further.

hope to answer your concern.
regards
Dr Tayyab Malik
