ALT AST - How high is TOO high?

I am so thankful to find you guys. Almost in tears with relief. I'm new to anything thing like this. Scared and ignorant. Please have patience. I'm female. 38 years old. I was told in 2001 I have Autoimmune Hepatitis. This month my ALT is 2515 and my AST is 1325. Jumped to there in one week from ALT 1848 / AST 906. Had been running in the over 100 mark for months. Can anyone tell me what this means? I know it's high. And I know the 'normal' ranges. What I need to know is how high can you go? And what might I be looking at in my future. I called the National Liver Foundation and asked and that nice lady about my levels. She didn't believe me. She thought I misplaced the decimal point or it was a lab error. I told her I had three test within a seven day period and all of them that range and going up fast. She had no information other than see their web site. I appreciated her help, but I'm still looking for more. Would appreciate any help possible. Straight from you guys who are there or from other links somewhere. THANKS!
