Elevated ALT levels

I am a 46 year old female 200lbs and I had a liver function test that showed that my AST was 155 and my ALT was 360, my abdominal ultrasound showed a fatty liver. What else could cause the levels to be that high?

Hepatitis - Viral or autoimmune, Wilson's disease, Hemachromatosis, Primary Biliary Cirhosis, Primary Sclerosing Colangitis (cholangitis),  Gallstones, Reaction to hepatotoxic drugs or  substances, alchoholism (alcoholism), Mononucleosis,  and so on,

Likely your Dr. ran tests - starting with the more basic hep screens first.  NASH or "Fatty Liver" can cause your enzyme markers to increase.  You may want to do an assessment of drugs your taking (prescription and OTC) and "see" if any of those are known to cause liver impairment....some do this insidiously, and other statin type drugs can creat problems rather quickly...

Not saying quit your meds (if your taking any) just become an educated consumer
