FInd the cause: Elevated liver transaminases usually call for a repeat off alcohol and meds. If still up, a check for the hepatitis family, hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis. As often as not, what the liver is really asking for is for you to get back to a fitness-focused lifestyle. Best wishes.

Depends on the cause: The commonest cause is alcohol. If you drink, quit doing that. If it is due to obesity, some medication, or hepatitis, you need to consult your doctor. See this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/elevated-liver-enzymes/my00508.
