AST can be eleveated from several things, illness, alcohol and certain meds just being a few.  What exactly was your AST level?  Are any other enzymes elevated?

God bless and take care!

ASt levels where 40 and ALT was 53 which is in the standard mean.I do take Tylenol Pm 2 per night and I was thinking that might cause the problem . I' am taking Liptor (liptor) which I know cause a problem with drinking but as stated I am not drinking.

Yes all three of those things can cause elevations.  Try cutting back or eliminating the Tylenol pm and the alcohol (those two together can be pretty harsh).  I would ask your doc to do a follow up LFT in 1- 3 months.  You are just slightly over normal so I wouldn't be incredibly alarmed by this at this point.

God bless and take care!
