i am 17 years old and tested positive for mono 3 weeks ago. WHen they did blood tests they also confirmed that my liver enzymes were high (AST=72 and ALT=114) there were two doctors and one said not to worry about it it was a side affect of the mono but the main doctor said that he was concerned about it which had me worried. i have to have another blood test in a week to see if the levels go back to normal. are my levels higher then most that get mono and have elevated enzymes? and when i asked a nurse what would happen if they enzymes did not go back to normal she just said your young dont worry about it but i really want to know what would happen if the levels did not go back?
