Thanks for the query.
When liver enzymes are high,it means liver is not functioning normally.
It means some liver disorder is there,even if no symptom have presented themselves.
There can be various reasons for high liver enzymes like
Excessive use of alcohol
High triglycerides
Viral hepatitis
Excessive use of certain herbal medicines
Use of medicines like antibiotics,anti fungals,anti seizures,pain killers etc
Auto immune disorders of liver and tumors of liver
and so on....

However seeing your report indicates that probably high triglcerides may be the cause for your high enzymes.
I advise you for
Do regular exercises
Stop alcohol ,if using
Stopping sweets and reducing fried foods
Get a prescription for anti lipid medicine from your doctor and taking it regularly
Get your enzymes tested again after 6 weeks and I hope you shall be alright.
However if enzyme levels don't come down,you must consult your doctor and get yourself thoroughly investigated.
I hope to have answered your query however you can revert to me for any further query.
Thanks and best of luck.
