In brief: 3x normal

If your level is three times the upper limit of normal, it is time to worry.
The enzymes go up due to many causes, e..g., viral infection, drugs, toxins, heart failure, tumors, gall stones etc.

In brief: Alcohol, meds, infxn

And early onset diabetes can all cause liver enzyme elevation as well as metastatic cancer.
You need to worry when in the hundreds/thousands.
