AST/ALT ratio over 2.... no alcohol

Ok, I went to the emergency room with symptoms of a heart attack.... indigestion and incredible pain between the shoulder blades. They don't think that it was a heart attack but I will have a stress echo tomorrow to make sure, but my ast/alt levels were high... ast was 148 and alt was 68. Everything I read says that this is due to advanced alcoholic liver disease, but I don't drink. My doctor has ordered more test for hepatitis, etc. Can a ast/alt ratio over 2 be something other than alcoholic liver disease?

Hepatitis A, B, C, is something you may want to look into.

OK... the tests came back negative for Hep A, B and C and the ast level is now down to 40 and the alt is up a little to 70. The doctor thinks it might be due to the hoodia supplement I was on for weight loss and will retest in another month.

Yes, hoodia is thought to have an effect on liver enzyme test, and that maybe all that it is.
