Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, the mild elevation in liver enzymes may be due to some medication she is taking, fatty liver, liver infection. It would need more information to sort it out. Avoid alcohol and Tylenol.

Liver is in trouble: Hi
these common lab tests measure the current state of your liver functions. These results show significant elevation and possible liver damage. They are nearly five times ideal.
This means that something toxic is affecting your liver. Common things would be medications, alcohol, or infection. Sometimes obesity can also do this if the liver has fat deposits in it.
Please get this identified.

Serious disease: These labs mean nothing by themselves. I am going to assume the person is sick and that the cause is not obvious. I am also going to assume that an extreme athletic effort or shock has not caused liver ischemia. If this is not alcoholic hepatitis and tests for acute hepatitis B and C are non-revealing, then medication hepatitis (famously, a fake-labeled "herbal remedy") must be considered.
