Elevated liver enzymes could be an indication of hepatitis (inflammation of the liver). There could be many reasons for inflammation. You need to see a doctor, as Tweety Bird said. As a hepatitis educator and someone who was diagnosed with hep c years ago, elevated liver enzymes are often the first symptom, so get it checked out and get tested if you have ever (even one time) been exposed to the risk factors. They are: blood transfusion before 1992, tattoos, piercings, needlesticks (medical workers), IV drug use even if only one time, military vaccinations, blood exposure (military, EMT's & paramedics, nurses, etc), snorting drugs, using someone else's razor or toothbrush, risky sex (MSM, rough sex, etc).
