Dear moeghe,

You need to talk to your doctor about what those results mean, and what you should do. If you want a second opinion, then you'll need to see another doctor who can get your health history from you, and go over any labwork and test results. I'm sorry, but it's not possible to do those things over the Internet.

Yours in health,

These are 2 common liver fuction test aslo known as AST and ALT. Most reference labs would put your values in the normal range. If this was testing done as a screen, bring a copy of all the results to your next doctors visit. If this was actually done through your doctor, simply ask them in any follow up is needed as a result of your testing.
