What could cause elevated liver enzymes in an otherwise healthy person?

Dr. Peter Wiernik
55 years experience in Hematology and Oncology
Medicines: If you are definitely healthy and have been told this by a physician, medicines you are taking could be the answer. Another possibility is starvation, which seems unlikely. You need to make sure that physician agrees with you that you are otherwise healthy.
