Need more info: 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, an ALT value of 39 per se is not to be concerned about. It would have helped to have rest of your lab data and imagining studies. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor who has access to this info.
