Hello,
It would have been really helpful if you had shared details about her symptoms. The most common cause of mild to moderate elevations is liver damage which may be seen in infections like typhoid fever and acute viral hepatitis A or B.Hepatitis A is the commonest viral infection causing hepatitis in children. Your daughter may need additional tests like HepBsag and IgM anti-HAV antibodies to know the cause of infection and to know whether it is due to hepatitis A or B infection. A clinical evaluation is necessary for correct diagnosis and management. Do write to me again with more information. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
