No: Elevated liver enzymes means your liver is undergoing damage. That doesn't usually cause fatigue although the underlying condition causing the damage may also cause your fatigue. For example some kind of hepatitis, too much alcohol, etc. You should discuss this with your doctor, and if not already done get tested for viral hepatitis, esp. Hepatitis c.
