I had blood work done and it turns out that

Patient

Q: I had blood work done and it turns out that I'm anemic and my alt levels were 58. My doctor is supposed to test me for hepatitis among other things. I was on tylenol, ibuprofen, prednisone, i took kava root for anxiety and I also am on birth control pills. I'm 5'2 200 lbs and have been eating fatty foods lately as well. Should I be worried about hepatitis? I'm really scared because I'm getting married and I don't want anything to hinder our relationship. PLEASE HELP! my doctor wants me to wait 3 months before I can get these tests.
