I don't think there is a simple answer to your question. The consensus upper limit normal for ALT is 30 iu/L for men and 19 iu/mL for women. Elevated ALT by itself it is not necessary bad, context is important. Persistent elevation of ALT and hbvdna may indicate disease activities leading to fibrosis and should be monitored carefully. On the other hand, elevated ALT with decreasing hbvdna may indicate immune activities and may be a good sign.
Anyway, check your hbvdna(viral load) and for fatty liver.
