I was cured of hep c a year ago. Now my ast is 114 and my alt is 71.

Is this common. Last year my liver panel was with normal ranges.

Did you have a HCV RNA test at 12 weeks post treatment?

My AST has recently crept up to slightly above normal I’m a bit overweight and am getting comments on my last ultrasound about fatty liver so my increase is because I’m starting to get fatty liver.

Do you have cirrhosis? Do you see your liver doctor every year and have blood testing including AFP and abdominal ultrasound every six months? Is your BMI above 30 indicating you are obese? Being overweight can also cause liver damage and elevated liver enzymes. Certain medicines and of coarse drinking alcohol can increase liver enzymes also certain other liver conditions.

If nothing is injuring your liver your liver enzymes should be normal. You should ask your doctor.

Good luck
