Hi, that is not too high, is it possible you had a bear the night before?  Medication can also raise it.  What is your AST?
Listing your other numbers would help.
When a doctor looks at your numbers they look at all of the numbers as a whole which helps them diagnose you.
What did your doctor say?
Take Care

Just because you have high ALT, does't mean you have Hepatitis B (or A or C, etc.). It can be a number of things. Do you take a lot of motrin or Advil? Any other mediciations? Do you drink a lot? My friend had an ALT of 57, but no Hepatitis. I'd classify as a borderline alcoholic though and his doctor told him that his drinking is what caused his ALT to go up. If you're really worried about any Hepatitis, then please go see a Liver Specialist or a Hepatologist to get testing and rul it out. Thanks!
