In brief: No

If these are up, usually your liver cells have been damaged somehow and are leaking their enzymes.
The liver heals wonderfully but you do want to find the cause. Often it's something as simple as coming back two weeks later after stopping your Ibuprofen or your beer. If they're still up, you're in for some labs to look for serious treatable disease.
