Hi, Dr. Ashori here, please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

Since your AST and ALT ratio is about 1:1, it's likely not cancer or hepatitis. With hepatitis it would be in the 1,000-5,000 range.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

With cancer usually there is a ratio of 2:1 or any variation of that. When it's this slightly elevated it could be due to medication or of possibly you are carrying some extra weight which we call steatohepaitis or fatty liver.
