Eat more Fibers: Please ask your doctor. We do not know why do you have elevated AST. Is it due to Alcohol, Viral hepatitis, Medicines or other diseases? Usually there is no direct connection but more water and Fibers help relieve the constipation. If you are on restricted water intake then Stool softener/Laxative can be used. BUT ask your doctor's advise who is treating you
