In brief: No

But all are markers for the metabolic syndrome.
I trust that alcohol, medications, hepatitis b and c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, and autoimmune hepatitis have been ruled out, or will be ruled out, as causing your elevated liver enzymes. The trick to managing metabolic syndrome is what you'd probably like doing anyway -- a fitness lifestyle, low carbs, getting lean muscle. Bump up fitness now?
