Hello and hope you are doing well.

Your liver enzymes seem to be elevated. The levels are elevated in liver disorders. Besides this they are also elevated in conditions like muscle injury and sometimes due to medications. If you do not have symptoms of liver disease like jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever, I would advise you to wait for now and repeat the test after four weeks to see how the levels are progressing.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello

You can have a hepatitis panel done to rule out an infection. As, the symptoms you experienced could be due to a prodromal phase of an infection, before the actual signs are evident. The body aches and general feeling of unwellness could indicate a viral infection. But it could also be due to bacterial infections of the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract infections or lung infections. So, please consult your primary care physician at the earliest for proper assessment. He may ask for blood and urine tests to determine the cause. In the meantime take OTC acetaminophen for the temperature and try to take warm oral fluids.

Warm regards.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

It's a hepatitis infection panel to rule out hepatitis A, B & C. Also, have blood counts done to see for the type of infection. A urine analysis and stool examination will further help to narrow down the diagnosis. If you can get back with your results could elaborate further.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
