Some liver disorder: Hepatitis from any cause can elevate your liver enzymes.Common causes include excessive alcohol use(drinking heavy) or a viral hepatitis like hepatitis-b or hepatitis-c. Your doctor can run further tests to find the cause and advise you about treatment as most forms of hepatitis can be preveted or treated.
