It’s my first priority to serve you.
Well as you describe your ALT and AST results are within normal range.
The normal range of values for AST is 5 to 40 U/L and for ALT is 7 to 56 U/L.
So you shouldn't worry at all.
However it's good to limit alcohol intake if you take it.
Also avoid frequent use of pain killers.
Otherwise you are absolutely fine.
A clinical correlation of your investigations findings with your current health by your doctor should be considered.
If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.
Bonus and positive feedback are highly appreciated.
