See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would help to have the actual values of the results. The one item of interest is high ALT. If you drink alcohol, stop entirely for three months and redo the test. Other results are okay.

Viral infections can cause these findings. Unless is it a chronic infection like Hep C or Hep B it should clear up. Some medications can also raise ALT.
