High liver enzymes in Babies

Can elevated liver enzymes in babies between the ages of 1-6 months be caused by under nourishing?

This baby I am asking about had a liver enzyme count of 190 until the age of 9 months when it went down to 35. Is there the possibility that because the baby weighed only 11 pounds at 5 1/2 months old that the higher level of enzmes was due to the mother under nourishing her baby? When we took the baby in as foster parents, we were able to bring her weight to 17 pounds at 9 months old and her liver enzyes are normal.

enzymes will fluctuate for several reasons.  mal nutrition can be one of them.  I am glad to see the baby is with a caring family . God bless you for taking this child in
