What is the meaning of high liver enzymes?

I just had a blood workup done for life insurance.  The results came back pretty good with just a strange reading for the liver enzymes.  All were within range except for the GGT/GGTP as follows:

Total bilirubin:  0.60
SGOT/AST:         21.00
SGPT/ALT:         22.00
GGT/GGPT:         77.00

I do not drink alcohol and do not take anti-seizure medications.  I do take birth control pills and Prilosec for heartburn.  I also have allergies and use albuterol, Serevent and Flovent as needed.

Could any of these drugs be the cause of the high reading of the GGPT?  Do you think I need to have further liver function tests?

My triglycerides were 158 and my cholesterol was 245 and blood glucose was 85.

Thank you!
