Thanks for the question. I would say that your AST levels are slightly above normal range but as your other liver tests are normal so there is no need for concern now. But it is important to repeat liver function tests with in three months to see and compare the levels. You should avoid taking alcohol, avoid taking pain killers. Even heavy work and hard exercise can raise AST levels in blood. Keep an eye and have a regular follow up of liver function tests. Best wishes.
