In brief: What is the cause?

The treatment will depend on the cause.
Liver enzymes can be elevated in a case of acute hepatitis , in hepatitis c ( acute and chronic), in drug overdose (tylenol, alchol etc) , drug related ( some statin /cholesterol medication, chemotherapy etc); red blood cell destruction ( hemolysis ) ;liver failure etc. You need to know why , before you can do something about it. Talk to your doctor in detail.
