reduce your fat intake.Dont drink too much.Cut way down on the pills and swith to alieve or others.anything foriegn in the liver makes it work harder.if you take alot of pills thats bad.reducing your fat intake is a major part.if fat is the problem then get liver clensers at the vitamin store.i had a biopsy . it wont damage the liver but you dont need it,i wouldnt think.i have hep c. elevated enzymes is costant for me,higher than yours.even with this disease eating at my liver,it may take 40 years to develope damage.my virus is growing slow.some people get damage in only 5 years.anyway fat is a problem.check into that and you should be fine.stay on the doctors because they can be a pain.try different things and get tested often. see ya good luck.

I have had elevated liver enzymes for 2 years, but it was only the one, now all 3 are elevated. The readings are 55,70,72, I just got retested today and will get my resultes back tomorrow.  I do not drink, smoke are consume alot of caffeine, so what can possibly be my problem?  If they are still elevated tomorrow I will be sent to a specialist.

I have had elevated liver enzymes (AST 68, ALT 105, GGT 175 and ALP 145) for over six months now.  I have had a battery of bloodwork to rule out Hep A,B,C, autoimmune hepatitis, Wilsons, PBC, etc.  Everything including a liver ultrasound has come back normal.  I was finally sent for a liver biopsy which turned up nothing!  There was no sign of inflammation or any other type of liver disease.  I am a 30 year old female that doesn't smoke or drink and am not overweight.  My specialist is stumped.  We are going to continue to monitor my enzymes monthly for the next six months and then make a decision whether or not to do an ERCP to check the bile ducts.  Anybody else have elevated liver enzymes with a normal liver biopsy?
By the way, the biopsy went really well and was virtually pain free.  It was no where near as bad as I thought it would be.
