In brief: Yes!

You need to talk with your doctor so that they can see if you are taking any prescriptions, drugs or supplements that can be harmful to your liver.
You need test for Hep A/B/C/D/E/etc based on risk factors. You can be tested for other forms of liver disease such as autoimmune hepatitis. Since ultrasound was normal, you can have FibroSure blood test to detect any liver inflammation and/or fibrosis.
