In brief: High liver enzyme

High liver enzymes indicate damage to liver is happening.
Your level of elevation is mild, but should be looked into for underlying cause. Meds like tylenol (acetaminophen) or atorvastatin, infection w/ hepatitis b/c, obstruction from gallstones or tumor, infiltration w/ fat if overweight, are some of possible causes. Make an appt w/ md for testing for infections, possibly ultrasound. Lose weight if needed.
