In brief: Hepatitis

Elevated ast and alt is consistent with liver inflammation (hepatitis).
Hepatitis can be caused by liver disease, viruses, alcohol consumption and autoimmune diseases. Elevated bilirubin can be caused by hepatitis or obstruction of biliary tract. Hepatitis is needs to be further evaluated to determine the etiology.
