Dear Dr. McGovern, I forgot to add that my cholesterol was high (262-but good cholesterol is extremely high as well) and my internist said that could be why my ALT was slightly high. I thought you should know that.

Yes this is important as well. High cholesterol and high triglycerides are associated sometimes with fatty liver so this is pertinent.
