Liver Disease: One can go into liver failure if their enzymes are more than five times normal. Your labs are four to eight times normal. This is very dangerous and must be addressed urgently to determine the cause of the problem.

Yes: The key isn't the height but that it indicates illness that's likely to be both serious and treatable. Please be sure that the cause gets identified. You may be allergic to one of your meds, or have hepatitis B or C, or steatohepatitis, or hemochromatosis; Wilson's would be unlikely at your age. Stay proactive and good luck.
