If you have cirrhosis or liver disease, can your enzymes go back to normal levels?

In brief: Sometimes

It depends how bad the cirrhosis is.
The liver is one of the body's best organs at regenerating. Also, a liver transplant can sometimes restore normal function.

In brief: Yes

With acute liver disease enzyme levels to return to normal once the inciting event has passed for example hep a.
With chronic liver injury ( hep b) there is an initial and sustained rise in enzymes as they are released from many injured cells. As cells die off over time, there are fewer enzymes remaining to be released and levels may fall back to "normal." however, this is clearly not normal.
