ALT/AST: Most commonly, in the person that doesnt drink, the alt/ast of the liver can be elevated from acetaminophen. Frequent use of this drug can have some liver toxicity and cause the enzyme levels to increase. In general, those enzyme increase with hepatitis. Keep in mind, hepatitis does not have to be viral. It is simply a term to describe inflammation of the liver. Wishing you'all the best.
