Dear Dr. I am HB. I was diagonised in Aug. 2006 and that time liver enzymes and ultrasound of liver was normal. It is almost 8 month that i have body pain problem and i checked for it and doctor says that it is not due to liver problem and it is artithis. Last month ALT and AST was 19 and 19 but this month on 2nd of April ALT and AST is 26 and 27. There is rise. and i feel some discomfort. Do you think i need further investigatiion. I am taking medicines for my body pain problem. Pls help me.

Those levels are still within normal limits and therefore would not be considered significant. You need to explore other causes with your doctor.
