    Bad diet such as fast food and soda can cause elevated enzymes. With diet change it will resolve.

      While it's true bad diet contributes to fatty liver which can raise liver enzymes, there are also many other reasons so it's not wise to tell the poster that if they change their diet their enzymes will return to normal.

      Only way to know the cause is to follow up with the Dr..... maybe request an ultrasound..

      Changing your diet is beneficial and a clean diet is good for your liver as is excersise if your able. You can do these things while your Dr investigates the cause of your elevated enzymes.

    Unfortunately there is no medication your Dr can give you to cure a fatty liver but the good news is fatty liver is reversible and to get to that point you need to eat healthy and exercise. Stay away from sugars, simple carbs, fried foods, fatty foods etc. It's important that you keep a good diet. Avoid alcohol and excersise at least 30 mins a day. You can talk to your Dr about taking 800 IU of vitamin E per day. Studies have shown it's beneficial for fatty liver and my heptaologist recommended this regime for me. Make sure you speak to you Dr about it first though..

    I would also ask for a referral to a gastro with knowledge of the liver or a heptaologist and let them follow you during your journey. It's been my experience regular primary care Drs aren't very knowledgeable when it comes to the liver...
