LFT:SGOT-12,SGPT-8,ALK PHOS-50,TOTAL BILIRUBIN-0.5 URINALYSIS:BILIRUBIN-++,PROTEIN-NEG,KETONES-NEG,SUGAR-NEG,S.G-1.030,P.H-6.0

Response from Dr. McGovern

Those tests look incredibly normal and so do not support the possibility of acute infection. Some patients with chronic infection can have normal Llver function tests so a one time test is not enough information. You will need further follow-up and testing.
