How high are they? How much higher than the normal range?

High liver enzyme level only indicate "something" is injuring the liver. It could be many things other than hepatitis.

Certain prescription medications
Drinking alcohol
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Taking too much over-the-counter pain medications, including acetaminophen (Tylenol, others)
Some vitamins and  supplements

Alcoholic hepatitis (liver inflammation caused by drinking alcohol)
Autoimmune hepatitis (liver inflammation caused by an autoimmune disorder)
Celiac disease (small intestine damage caused by gluten)
Cirrhosis (liver scarring)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection
Dermatomyositis (inflammatory disease that causes muscle weakness and skin rash)
Epstein-Barr virus
Gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis)
Heart attack
Hemochromatosis (too much iron stored in your body)
Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)
Liver cancer
Mononucleosis
Pancreatitis (pancreas inflammation)
Polymyositis (inflammatory disease that causes muscle weakness)
Wilson's disease (too much copper stored in your body)

See a gastroenterologist to find out what is causing your elevated levels.

It sounds like you are on the right path. Fatty liver disease can increase liver enzyme levels.

Let us know what you find out.

Good luck to you!

"i have a fatty liver"

Definition
By Mayo Clinic staff

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease  
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a term used to describe the accumulation of fat in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is common and, for most people, causes no signs and symptoms and no complications. But in some people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, the fat that accumulates can cause inflammation and scarring in the liver. This more serious form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is sometimes called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. At its most severe, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can progress to liver failure.

Causes

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease  
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease occurs when your liver has trouble breaking down fats, causing fat to build up in your liver tissue. Doctors aren't sure what causes this. The wide range of diseases and conditions linked to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is so diverse that it's difficult to pinpoint any one cause.

Risk factors

A wide range of diseases and conditions can increase your risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, including:

Certain medications
Gastric bypass surgery
High cholesterol
High levels of triglycerides in the blood
Malnutrition
Metabolic syndrome
Obesity
Rapid weight loss
Toxins and chemicals, such as pesticides
Type 2 diabetes
Wilson's disease
