High Liver Enzymes

Hello,

I just did a routine blood test for a life insurance policy and was denied due to high liver enzymes.  My results were as follows....

My ALT is 227

My AST is 131

My GGT is 239

I have became very worried about this as I am not sure how serious this could be.  I drink alcohol on a daily basis at business functions with heavy drinking at times with friends and family.  Would this most likely be my problem and if I cut back dramatically could that help.  Or...am I possibly looking at something much more scary.  The test showed negative for hepatits and all others were normal.  Thank you so much for your help!!!
