I have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

So naturally my counts of blood work will be high. I saw the hematologist today due to having anemia. So routine blood work was done. Mine iron was fine by the way.
I got my test results myself..online.
My liver levels

ALT (Feb) 72 now today May at 99

AST (Feb) 46 now today May at 76

The hematologist did suggest talking to my reg doctor about hepatitis but ive jad blood work for that and all Neg.

So should i call my regular doctor about this?
How can it jump that much in just 3 months??

Ffs yes. A doctor even told you to go see your regular doctor.

It can jump that and some follow up lab work should be done. I'd call your doctor and request additional testing to determine the cause.

I think the only other thing that can look for would be cirrhosis. :(

Not having a diagnosis, and worsening numbers, is even more if a reason to go see your doctor!

I would get a referral to a GI/hepatologist if I were you!

I see a GI doctor and the tests he did were all fine except me having inflammation in my esophagus down to my stomach and in my stomach lining

My GI dr also specializes in liver problems. He is consult for our patients with cirrhosis, abnormal lab enzymes, etc. he (the specialist) would be the best person to follow and treat your condition. I would make an appt with him and bring your lab work.
