Elevated ATP
He is Hep B patient (known for 7 years). Going for regular health checkup, last few years he has mild fatty liver and increased SGPT/SGOT. His HBV DNA is -VE. This year his SGPT/SGOT is normal but AST is slightly high from normal range (~10% high). His ultrasound report is normal (again mild fatty liver ) Height: 5 foot 6 inch Weight 72 Kg What should be our next steps (in past we have gone series of test suggested by doctor and each time only SGPT/SGOT was abnormal and rest of the test were normal). Does 10% high AST suggest liver is having any minor or major issue?

Isolated ALP elevation is not significant. Fibroscan is a very good test. DNA can be repeated if not done in last one year. We are doing fibroscan camp this Wednesday. Please feel free to contact if required. It's at BMS Hospital, Bull temple road, basavangudi. Regards Adarsh CK
