Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

Many conditions and diseases can contribute to elevated liver enzymes. Your doctor will determine the specific cause of your elevated liver enzymes by reviewing your medications, signs, and symptoms.

Some common causes of elevated liver enzymes include:
Over-the-counter pain medications, in particular, acetaminophen.
Certain prescription medications
Drinking alcohol
Hepatitis (A, B, or C)
Among other causes. 

Your doctor may suggest other tests in order to determine what's causing your elevated liver enzymes. 

Try not to worry. Keep us updated.
