Hi! I am a 20 years old male. Quite thin and underweight. I suffered from jaundice in october of last year. It has been almost 6 months that my ALT, AST and bilirubin values are not getting normal. initially, the values were very high which gradually decreased with time but from last three months the values are not getting lower. The value of ALT in February was 110, in March it was 122 and now ALT is 145. AST in this month's report is 52 and Total bilirubin is 2.2. My ultrasound done in february showed no fatty liver infact liver is in good shape and size.On doctor's advice i have been taking lots of fluid and diet precautions but i am really worried about the values not getting normal and seek your advice and suggestions. Kindly tell what should i do? Is it something seriously wrong?
