Your liver enzymes are elevated, it could be due to alcohol consumption. Was an ultrasonography done? If there were Fatty liver changes it can be due to alcoholism when it is called Alcoholic fatty liver disease. If you do not have symptoms of liver disease like jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever, I would advise you to wait for now and repeat the test after four weeks to see how the levels are progressing. In the meantime you could follow certain precautions. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Avoid drugs like paracetamol and sedatives. Get vaccinated for hepatitis A & B. Take a good protein diet.
When the liver cells are damaged the enzymes spill into the blood and so the levels are raised in blood testing. So, if the basic insult is dealt with, the enzyme levels should normalize. Also, obesity, diabetes and high triglyceride levels can cause fatty liver changes. So, prevention or cure is by avoiding alcohol and treating diabetes, obesity and high triglyceride levels. You can also use herbal medications like LIv 52, it helps in regeneration of the liver.
