Response from Dr. McGovern
I think you are out of the woods for viral hepatitis.
However, you have abnormal liver function tests. I would discuss your current medications with your physician to see if any may be the problem.
The other issue is you may need evaluation for other causes of liver disease including steatohepatitis (NASH) secondary to obesity, hemochromatosis, and others.
