what are the causes of high levels of enzymes in your liver and heart?

Enzymes: The stock answer is myocardial cell damage or death causes release and elevation of the enzymes. Cardiac enzymes are supposed to be very specific, in practice not quite so much.. Similar for liver, generally means organ damage but not really that simple.
