It's serious: These may be repeated off alcohol and medications. If they're still high or if this doesn't seem to be the issue, you'll be tested for hepatitis B and C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, antitrypsin deficiency, and autoimmune hepatitis. These are deadly if missed, fairly easy to treat if detected. If all are normal, you may simply need more exercise and a better diet. Stay proactive.
