All your blood tests are normal except for your liver tests which are slightly elevated(A.P,AST,ALT) This can be due to many different causes and the doctor will need to exclude chronic hepatitis, alcohol, metabolic causes, fatty liver, gallstones, autoimmune and reactions to medications. Once the diagnosis is made treatment may or may not be necessary.
