Had 2 blood tests days apart. Alt levels of ~360. I don't drink, smoke, do drugs, take meds. No infections, diseases. Possible reasons for ALT levels?

In brief: Viral infection

Often times this can be caused by a viral infection.
It should definitely be watched to see if it comes down on it's own. If not, further testing incuding an ultrasound should be done to make sure nothing is blocked, like the gallblader tubes.

In brief: ?Viral infection

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.
Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, it may be due to viral infection and it would be useful to repeat it in three months, unless you become symptomatic.
